Alfredo sauce?

I need alfredo sauce, from a jar, for a quick meal. I have tried Prego and Newmans Own, and I think they taste like stinky feet. Do you know of a sauce that doesn't have that funky cheesey, rubber quality to it?

  • Try the Knorr brand dry packets of pasta sausce that you add milk to and simmer on the stove for 5 minutes... Better than jar, but not as good as home-made...

  • I like Newmans marinara and his salsa, but his alfredo has a stinky gross taste I did not like at all.

  • I can tell you how to make it in the same time you could heat a jar. Melt 1/2 stick of butter in a pan over medium heat. While it is melting heat 3 cups of milk in the microwave for 2 minutes. When the butter is melted stir in 1/4 cup flour. Stir until bubbly and blended. Slowly pour in the heated milk (you can use half and half if you like) and whisk until smooth. Reduce heat to medium low. Stir with a wooden spoon until thick. Add 1 to 1/2 cups of shredded parmesan cheese. Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of salt and ground pepper to taste. Stir until cheese is melted. If you like it to have garlic, add some fresh or jarred garlic with the butter. If you only have granulated garlic and 1/2 teaspoon with the salt. You can adjust the seasonings to suit your tastes. If you use lowfat milk it is likely to curdle when heated. Make sure the heat is on low if using lowfat milk and stir constantly.
