This copycat Olive Garden Alfredo sauce is rich, flavorful, creamy, and tastes just like the sauce you get in the restaurant.
This recipe for Olive Garden alfredo sauce is really going to help you out when you’re wanting Olive Garden, but can’t get there (or don’t want to pay almost $20 for a bowl of pasta).

It’s rich, creamy, flavorful and is great on pasta, veggies, meats, etc. Plus, it’s super simple and will beat jarred sauces in the taste department every time.

Copycat Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce


  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a skillet over medium-low heat, add the butter and allow to melt. Stir the garlic in and cook until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  2. Add the heavy whipping cream and allow it to come to a very low simmer, stirring occasionally. After the cream mixture has reduced slightly (after about 5 minutes), stir in salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese in and remove the pan from the heat. Stir the mixture until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.
  4. I like to serve this sauce over pasta with grilled chicken and lots of veggies mixed in (like steamed zucchini, peas, broccoli, green beans, etc.). You could also use the sauce as a dipping sauce for bread.
