homemade Cream Cheese Garlic Alfredo Sauce is always a family favorite and you only need a few simple ingredients to make it.Serve over pasta noodles or use in any recipe that calls for alfredo sauce.

If you are looking for an easy dinner recipe that your entire family will love then you’re in the right place. This Alfredo sauce is so yummy, easy to make, and it’s one of those recipes that you know you can make and your kids will eat it with no favorite ingredient to use in Alfredo sauce is cream cheese. It provides so much creaminess, richness, and deep flavor.


One of my family’s favorite & most requested dinners is this garlic parmesan pasta. It’s the same idea as this Alfredo sauce but the recipe is much lighter (calorie wise) and equally delicious.


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter
  • 1 block (8 oz) cream cheese, cut into chunks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 8 oz wedge parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or less to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper.


  • Melt butter in a saucepan (or skilet pan with high sides) over medium-high heat. Once melted, add in the chunked cream cheese and garlic powder. Stir with a whisk until mostly smooth and mixed together. This will take a couple of minutes { It may look curdled and not perfectly smooth but that’s fine. It will smooth out when the liquid is added. }
  • Add the whipping cream and chicken broth a little bit at a time, while whisking constantly. Bring to a low boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and add the parmesan cheese, salt & pepper. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. 
  • Take the pan off the heat and let it sit for about 5 minutes so it can thicken up. Serve over pasta noodles of choice. You can also add the cooked pasta noodles into the pan and mix it in with the noodles and then serve that way. Or serve the noodles and sauce separately. 
  • The alfredo sauce won’t thicken up all the way until you turn the heat off and let the alfredo sauce sit there for several minutes. Be sure to allow about 5 minutes to let the alfredo sauce sit and rest before serving.
