I first started making Alfredo recipes after taking a cooking class over 30 years ago. I have experimented with different ingredients which the family loves as it is always a surprise as to what kind of Alfredo dish they are receiving. I always keep whipping cream and Parmesan in the refrigerator, as you never know when company will drop by.
