A few days ago I posted a recipe for Easy Alfredo Sauce and in that post I failed to mention a great variation. I like foods that have a little kick to them and I like to use cayenne pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. This is an easy addition to Alfredo sauce that will give it some heat!
Kickin’ Alfredo Sauce
1 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 Cup Flour
2 Tsp Minced Garlic
1 Tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/2-1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper(more or less depending on how spicy you like your food)
1 Tsp Onion Powder
1/4 Cup Butter
1 1/2 Cups Shredded Parmesan
First, melt the butter in a medium sauce pan with the cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, minced garlic, and onion powder. Simmer over low heat for about 3 minutes before adding the whipping cream. Stir continuously over medium-low heat for approximately 10 minutes. Next, slowly stir in the flour with a whisk until well blended. Taste your sauce and add a few shakes of salt if it is needed. Add the Parmesan cheese and continue to stir until the cheese is melted. Finally, serve over your favorite pasta.
