  • 1/2 cup Butter I use salted here
  • 1 pint Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1.5 cups Parmesan Freshly grated. Use 2 cups in you like.
  • 1 clove Garlic Minced
  • 1 tsp Garlic Power
  • 1/4 tsp Basil Chopped – Dry or Fresh
  • 1/4 tsp Oregano Chopped – Dry or Fresh
  • 1/4 tsp Thyme Chopped – Dry or Fresh
  • 1/4 tsp Rosemary Chopped – Dry or Fresh
  • 1 ea Pepper To taste
  • 1 ea Salt To taste
  • 1 ea Black Summer Truffle Optional


  • Melt your butter over low heat in a large sauce pan (might even need a pot if you don't have a tall sauce pan). Add the cream and cream cheese. Stir until blended.
  • Add the garlic, garlic powder, and seasonings.
  • Continue to stir until the butter and cream has finally combined. You may need to add and reduce heat intermittently.
  • Add the fresh Parmesan and stir. Grate in the black summer truffle. I used an entire HALF truffle here. All depends on the truffle itself. Taste the sauce as you go.
  • Continue to reduce the sauce down over a simmer until it's reached your desired viscosity.


  • This is by far my favorite Alfredo sauce I’ve cooked up.  As you can see, it’s a heart clogger though!  😉
