I forgot to grab alfredo sauce at the store last week. I needed it to make Pot Roast casserole with our leftover pot roast from earlier in the week. Normally I'd hop in the car and swing by the store to grab a jar or text MacGyver and ask him to grab some but, instead I hopped online and looked up recipes for homemade alfredo sauce. Thankfully, I had on hand everything that was needed! And this sauce came out better-tasting than anything I've ever bought in a jar. I tweaked what I had found just a bit to tailor it to my family's palette:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
2 cups milk (2%)
6 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
If you compare that to the ingredients in Classico's alfredo sauce, you'll find that
the ingredients in the homemade sauce are fewer and easier to understand/pronounce. And I'm sure it cost less too.
The pot roast casserole was easy-peasy too - the most difficult part was keeping MacGyver from eating all of the leftover pot roast!
8 oz egg noodles, cooked
2 cups chopped cooked pot roast
2 cups alfredo sauce (see above)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup bread crumbs
Dump it all in a 9x9 baking dish and bake at 350*F for 20-30 minutes.
I served it with steamed green beans, a loaf of freshly baked French bread, and a salad. Yummilicious!
