For best results when making alfredo sauce you should try to follow the recipe exactly. If you need to make substitutions, here are some tips to help you out:
- Don't replace heavy cream with lower fat dairy like milk or half-and-half without adding a thickener like cornstarch. They tend to curdle easier and need a binding ingredient to stabilize.
-To prevent separation, don't cook the sauce over high heat.
-Don't cover the sauce. The lid will trap steam in which can dilute it. Having the lid on can also make it curdle since it increases the temperature inside.
-When reheating sauces it's best to do it in a double boiler over simmering water. It will be just like it was freshly made!
-For best results, use freshly grated Parmesan (or other cheese called for). Second best is pre-shredded. Last resort is the stuff in the green can!
