Alfredo is an Italian sauce made several ways. In its simplest incarnation, hot cooked pasta is tossed with cream, butter, and cheese until a sauce forms and coats the pasta. Alfredo Sauce is a velvety white sauce sometimes made with cheese and garlic. The sauce is rich and delicious, and easy to make. These recipes all use Alfredo sauce in different ways: from a pot pie to the classic Fettuccine Alfredo.

This wonderful casserole is my new favorite recipe. The bacon adds a smoky flavor, the stuffed ravioli is perfect paired with squash and broccoli, and Parmesan cheese is the perfect finishing touch.

Okay, so this isn't a true Alfredo recipe. But Alfredo sauce is a great choice for making creamy and smooth slow cooker dishes. Its addition to macaroni and cheese made in the slow cooker ensures perfect results.

4. Classic Fettuccine Alfredo

Classic Fettuccine Alfredo

Well, not exactly classic. I add garlic, a bit of cornstarch and some lemon juice so the cheese melts smoothly. Please, use real freshly grated Parm for this recipe; not the stuff from the green can, or you'll have a clumpy mess! Make just as directed for a fabulous treat.

5. Quick Swedish Meatballs

Mushrooms, onions, garlic, and frozen precooked meatballs, plus a jar of Alfredo sauce, make this recipe super flavorful

6. Chicken and Shrimp Alfredo

This elegant recipe, made in your slow cooker, uses bottled Alfredo sauce as a shortcut ingredient. The Alfredo sauce also has stabilizers that keep the sauce smooth and creamy throughout the long cooking time. Serve over pasta or hot cooked rice.

7. Instant Alfredo Sauce

This sauce, made with cream cheese (one of my favorite ingredients) is cooked quickly in the microwave oven. It's delicious over pasta, chicken, or pork chops, and you can use it as a substitute for bottled Alfredo sauce

8. Chicken Alfredo Pot Pie

Alfredo sauce is the perfect base for this elegant pot pie. Lots of vegetables and herbs make this pie special. And the crust is made with breadstick dough!

9. Crockpot Chicken Alfredo

Chicken thighs, red bell pepper, and broccoli are cooked in the slow cooker with bottled Alfredo sauce. This easy recipe is delicious and good for you too.

10. Chicken Alfredo Casserole

Just six ingredients make this pasta and chicken casserole a breeze. You could add vegetables to this recipe if you'd like; just make sure they're cooked before mixing with the cheese, pasta, and sauce.
