This delightfully spicy Alfredo sauce, creamy and rich with Parmesan cheese, gets its heat from Calabrian hot pepper paste. Serve this sauce over pasta, and garnish with more pepper paste if you like.

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cloves garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Calabrian hot pepper paste, or to taste
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
Step By Step Method
  1. Melt butter In a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic and Calabrian hot pepper paste. Slowly pour in half-and-half and whipping cream; stir.
  2. Add Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup at a time, stirring after each addition. Cook for a total of 4 minutes, stirring continuously. Turn off the heat. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
