Olive Garden is one of my favorite places to eat when we go out. I LOVE pasta and breadsticks! Especially pasta dishes with cream sauces like alfredo sauce. The Chicken Alfredo is one of my favorite dishes to order because of that sauce. This recipe is really easy to make at home and goes great with any pasta. I could seriously drink the stuff.

  2. Mia says

    HEY this sounds great!! im wondering if it will keep though? im trying to make a big batch so ill have it foe awhile. Can i put this in a mason jar in the fridge?

    • Alli says

      Hi Mia! The sauce is good in the fridge for about a week. But it also freezes well for about 3 months. I used just the pre-packaged Great Value Italian blend cheese. It’s a combination of mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, romano, fontina, and asiago.

  3. Mia says

    also, what kind of itlain cheese? do you have a brand you can reccomend? i was thinking if its grated, maybe the kraft parm, and romano? im not sure honestly.
