FAQ’S

What Is Alfredo Sauce?

Alfredo sauce is a creamy white sauce that is typically paired up with chicken, noodles or often used as a substitute for marinara sauce or even pizza sauce in certain dishes.

Can You Freeze Alfredo Sauce?

While it’s technically able to be frozen, it’s not something that I would suggest doing. This is because alfredo sauce is a cream-based sauce that can separate while in the freezer.

How to Make Alfredo Sauce Thicker?

There are a few ways that you can thicken bacon fettuccine alfredo sauce. One way is to add a little bit of cream cheese to the mixture as you’re heating it up on the stove. The other options are to add in different types of shredded cheese or even put a little bit of cornstarch in it to thicken it up. 

Do You Add Stock To Fettuccine Alfredo?

While some recipes add a splash of chicken broth or chicken stock to the fettuccine sauce mix, this recipe does not require any form of stock.
