Classico Sun-Dried Tomato Alfredo Sauce Recipe Ingredients:

Our Classico sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce is super easy to make. However, I used only 7 easily available ingredients. And it’ll take not more than 10 minutes of your time. Take a jar of sun-dried tomatoes and mix it with butter, fresh cream, and parmesan cheese, your silky, smooth pasta sauce will be ready to serve.

Sun-dried Tomatoes:

Sun-dried tomatoes are fresh tomatoes sprinkled with salt and dried in the sun for easy preservation. Later on, those are packed in olive oil or kept dehydrated. In this recipe, I used 1 cup blended puree of sun-dried tomatoes.

Heavy Whipped Cream:

Whipped cream is a high-fat dairy cream used in deserts, soups, and gravies. It improves the consistency of any recipe. 1 cup of heavy cream is used in the recipe to make it rich and creamy.

Salted Butter:

Butter is a dairy product made from fat and protein components of milk used in both sweet and savory recipes. Butter adds creaminess as well as enhances the taste of any recipe. 4 tablespoons of salted butter is used in the recipe.

Parmesan Cheese:

Parmesan cheese has a pale yellow color and a relatively hard texture. It is usually grated on pasta, pizza, or salad. It is tangy, bold, and complex in taste. 1 cup grated parmesan cheese is used in the recipe.

Garlic Powder:

Garlic powder is dehydrated and powdered garlic used as a spice in cooking. Garlic has a unique flavor profile, sweet, spicy, and pungent all at the same time. I used 1 teaspoon of garlic powder in the recipe.

Nutmeg Powder:

Nutmeg is a powerful spice that has a unique pungent fragrance and a mild sweet flavor. It is used to add flavor to meat, potatoes, baked items, vegetables, and pickling. Just a pinch of nutmeg powder will be enough for our recipe. 

Pepper:

Do you love a hint of pepper in any kind of sauce? With its pungent, spicy, and bold flavors pepper pairs well with sauces and savory dishes. ½ teaspoon of pepper is used in the recipe to improve the color and taste of our Alfredo sauce with sun-dried tomatoes. 

How To Make Classico Sun-Dried Tomato Alfredo Sauce:

Typically, Alfredo sauce uses only dairy products like cream, cheese, and butter to build its taste. Combining sun-dried tomatoes with it makes it a wholesome pasta sauce. Also, I kept the dried Alfredo sauce recipe quite simple. Let’s learn the recipe in some easy steps:

Step 1:

Take a jar of sun-dried tomatoes. Put it in a mixer and blend it into puree. Finely grate ½ cup parmesan cheese. Put both aside.

Step 2:

Put a pan on the stove. Add the cream and butter to the pan. Bring it to a simmer over medium heat. Keep stirring until the butter is melted well. 

Step 3:

Put the sun-dried tomato puree in the pan. Continue stirring and let the sauce thicken up. Put the garlic powder, nutmeg, and pepper at this stage.

Step 4:

Lastly, add grated parmesan cheese and stir until it’s well melted. Serve right away with pasta or store for later use. 

How To Make Alfredo Sauce Thicker:

Do you like your Classico sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce thicker? Here’s what you can do to add to the thickness:

  • Boil the cream for another 3 minutes before you add cheese and other ingredients. The cream will lose moisture and thicken up easily. 
  • Another option is to add an extra ½ cup shredded cheese and give it a melt. The sauce will be creamier and certainly thicker than before. 
  • Also, keep in mind that the sauce will get thicker when it cools down.

Though nutmeg may not be readily available at your home, try not to skip this ingredient. Just a pinch of nutmeg adds a mild sweetness to the sauce.
Use canned tomatoes packed in oil or the actually dried sun-dried tomatoes. Both work well.
Let me tell you a secret for easy and smooth blending. Use half a cup of chicken stock while blending the tomatoes.
Don’t hesitate to be creative with the recipe. Add chili pepper flakes if you want spicier.
Store the sauce in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to a week.
