Hello my fine foodie friends! I just want to say that I am stoked for today! I love alfredo sauce, but being gluten free, it can be really hard to find a gluten free version that tastes good. Well, we’re all in luck because I have truly found the best gluten free alfredo sauce ever!
I wish I could take credit for this recipe’s creation, but alas, I can not. My husband, who is actually an amazing cook, found this one. At the time, he we were making zucchini noodle pasta and were looking for a sauce to go with it. Luckily, he found this amazing recipe here!
This is not a recipe for a “healthy sauce”, just to be clear. In fact, don’t tell your cardiologist what is in here…ever. It’s a giant butter, and cheese-fest in fact. I guess that’s what makes it so good though. Also, it comes together very quickly and there is a fair amount of whisking so be aware. Just have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go, and you’ll be just fine. You’ll reap those delicious rewards and will definitely want to save this one for later.
Let’s do this!

Bring to a simmer and continue to cook for about 3-5 minutes or until it starts to thicken. Toss it with your favorite gluten free pasta or zoodles!
I used gluten free penne pasta and added shiitake mushrooms, baby Portobello mushrooms, a tiny bit of truffle oil, and fresh sage with mine. It was delicious!
