Don't know where I originally got this, but this is the best alfredo sauce I have ever had outside of a restaurant. I have made it with or without the cream cheese, and with all Parmesan, and it still turns out great. The nutmeg is essential!

This is the first time that I have made a "real" Alfredo Sauce and it did not disappoint! My husband requested chicken and broccoli fettucine alfredo for his birthday supper and this is the recipe that I decided to try. He loved it and I will definitely be using this as my go to alfredo sauce from here on out!!
