Keto Alfredo Sauce Backstory
Growing up, we ate out quite a bit.
It isn't that my mom didn't cook. She was and is a great cook.
It is just that both of my parents enjoy eating out and see it as a form of recreation. (I supposed that is where I get it from - I love to eat out as well.)
There weren't a lot of non-chain options where I grew up, so most often we were visiting chains.
One of my favorites as a kid was the Olive Garden.
This was long before I knew that gluten was an issue for me, and even longer before I realized that I felt better when I kept my carbs in check.
My favorite meal there was the Fettuccine Alfredo. I can still remember diving into a bowl. I would always ask for an extra side of Alfredo to dip my breadsticks in. Because as much as I loved pasta, it was all about the delicious sauce.
Pasta and I have officially broken up, but I am still loving Alfredo.
I think you are going to fall in love with this Keto Alfredo Sauce as much as I have. It has all the yumminess of you know and love.
Really, is there anything that isn't better with a drizzle of Alfredo?
Ok, ice cream. This would be very bad on ice cream.
But I can't think of a protein or vegetable that wouldn't be a bit better with this sauce.
I like to make it on the weekend and keep a jar in the fridge. That way I can pull it out and have dinner ready in a flash.
One of my favorite ways to enjoy it is with Keto Chicken Alfredo. It is a crazy good and surprisingly easy meal. It is also great over broccoli or meatballs or even just drizzled on a steak. Dinner bliss!
