Homemade lemon Alfredo sauce with heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, and zest tastes delicious over pasta, vegetables, or fish.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 0.25 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 medium lemon, zested and juiced
  • 0.33 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 0.33 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Melt butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Once butter is foamy, add garlic, pepper, salt, and nutmeg. Cook and stir until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. 2 Gradually whisk in cream, stirring constantly, to incorporate cream into butter. Drizzle in lemon juice, then add lemon zest, while stirring constantly. Keep stirring until sauce coats the back of a spoon, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. 3 Remove from heat and stir in grated Pecorino Romano and Parmesan cheeses. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary. Serve garnished with parsley.
