Love alfredo sauce over noodles?

You won’t believe how easy it is to make creamy keto alfredo sauce at home on the stove! It takes just a few ingredients and tastes AMAZING! The creamy texture and garlic cheese taste are super satisfying and delicious. There’s no thickener needed, and your family will want this low-carb sauce on everything!

Creating this alfredo sauce couldn’t be any easier! It comes together quickly by melting all the ingredients together on the stove, and it takes just a few minutes.

I served mine over some quick zucchini noodles and pieces of chicken as a yummy and easy dinner. This sauce is so versatile, though, and can serve as the backdrop for other delicious keto meal ideas. For instance, you can use it to make a chicken alfredo Fat Head pizza, or spoon this homemade alfredo sauce over these 2-ingredient keto noodles! YUM!

Hip Tips: 

  • Season your sauce as desired. I used a little of my favorite truffle salt, and it worked so well with these flavors! Of course traditional salt is fine, too. A bit of nutmeg is common in alfredo sauce and I love it here, too.
  • Adjust the consistency according to your liking. If it’s too thick, thin with a little broth or more cream.
  • Spiralize your zoodles! My veggie spiralizer is one of my favorite kitchen tools for keto, as it makes ideas like this one quick and easy to make!
  • Make ahead and store it! Homemade alfredo sauce can be stored, covered in the fridge for about 3-4 days. This would be a smart sauce to have on hand for meal planning during the week!
