Directions

  1. Melt butter and olive oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add cream, garlic, and white pepper; bring to just under a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until mixture is slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir Parmesan cheese into cream mixture and simmer until sauce is thickened and smooth, 8 to 10 minutes. Add mozzarella cheese to sauce; cook and stir until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and transfer pasta to serving plates. Spoon sauce over pasta.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • For an added touch, sprinkle some freshly chopped parsley over your personal plate.
  • If you have a rotisserie chicken just waiting to be used, I suggest to use the whole chicken breast and cut into bite-size pieces and stir into your finished sauce. Both could really take your dish to the next level.

Yes, yes, yes! I love alfredo sauces when I go out, but before now have never found a recipe I could master in my own kitchen. Creamy and quick and actually worked pretty well as leftovers. My only tweak was to substitute 1/2 cup whole milk for 1/2 cup of the cream (to lighten just a little). I used wet mozzarella and it melted just fine. I served with sauteed chicken and steamed broccoli tossed in. Excellent.

Really delicious, and agrees with it's title. I used only shredded Parmesan because that was all I had and it was still great. This will definitely be my go-to Alfredo sauce now.

LOVED IT!!!!! This was so easy to make and the flavor was fantastic! I used black pepper b/c I don't have white on hand. I was worried about the mozzarella, but it melted beautifully and added a nice touch to the sauce. I served this over mini penne...a definite keeper for this alfredo lover~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
