light cream butter fresh grated parmesan


Light cream is between half and half and heavy cream and has a butterfat around 18-24%

What is  "light" cream?

Heat cream & butter in a large skillet over low heat until cream thickens about 4 minutes.


Cook a pot of fettuccine al dente (which means "to the tooth). It should be firm with a little white center.


Reserve about 1/2 cup of pasta water to add and create a super creamy Alfredo sauce!

Alfredo Sauce  Tip

Toss the pasta in the thickened butter and cream sauce until all the pasta is coated.


Make this easy and creamy pasta sauce in 15 minutes!

"Simply delicious! Who knew a cream sauce could be so easy. Just like you said I had never noticed light cream in the store. Love this tip!."
