Secondly, add the garlic salt, Italian seasonings, salt, and pepper.

If you have minced garlic, you can add a teaspoon of that instead of the garlic salt and it will taste a little fresher.

I didn’t have any, so I used garlic salt, which I always keep in the cabinet.

Thirdly, add the parmesan cheese. Fresh grated parmesan is always going to taste better, but I didn’t have any.

I almost always buy some finely grated parmesan cheese (like Kraft sells) and keep it in the fridge. That way, I have some to top pizza, spaghetti, or in this case Alfredo sauce! 

Once you add the parmesan cheese, mix it up and let it simmer for about 5 minutes while it thickens. 

Once it thickens, add it to your meal, or pour into a glass jar, and keep it in the fridge.
