Homemade Alfredo Sauce Brightens Up Average Pasta

Creamy and fresh, this Homemade Alfredo Sauce with Spinach beats the jarred sauces, hands down.  Simple ingredients meld together to become so much more than they started out to be.  But this sauce is more than just a good sauce.  Fresh baby spinach adds not only a splash of beautiful green color, but also an earthiness that only spinach can bring.

What’s Homemade Alfredo Sauce with Spinach Good For?

Um…everything!  I love Homemade Alfredo Sauce with Spinach over pasta, or to dip breadsticks in, but it’s phenomenal over grilled chicken or as an odd, but fabulous topping to a burger.  If you have a store that carries fancy pasta, like tomato or spinach, it is delicious over it.  Steamed veggies, such as broccoli, are even tastier with some homemade spinach alfredo sauce.

Don’t Fear the Homemade Alfredo Sauce with Spinach!

People think Homemade Alfredo Sauce with Spinach is so hard to make, but there’s really no mystery to it.  It’s a simple sauce that is easy to make, if you know the secrets.  I would never have tried putting cream cheese in it if I hadn’t been to a local Italian restaurant and asked about their secret to their sauce.  Cream cheese thickens, without adding a lot of extra flour, but it also adds a wonderful texture and flavor that can’t be beat!
