Alfredo Sauce With Mushrooms and Asparagus

1_600x450

I crave hot pastas in the winter, they are definitely a seasonal fare for me, and I was definitely having a craving when I put this together. Besides the fact that Parmesan is amazing, Asiago cheese is the bees knees when it comes to flavor.

This sauce is strong, so if you like a dainty Alfredo, this is not for you. If I am going to ingest about 1 trillion calories for supper, the cheese flavor better rear up and kick me in the teeth, no mellow for this girl. And the garlic, well, if you like it tamer, use about 2 cloves instead of three.

Ingredients needed:

      1/2 cup butter

     

        3 garlic cloves, minced

       

          2 cups of heavy cream

         

            1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

           

            1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese

          Melt the butter in medium saucepan over medium/low heat.

          Mince your garlic up.

          Remove the butter and add in the garlic and oh my, does this smell like an evening spent with lobster. I could have wept with joy taking this picture, just from the garlic butter smell that permeated my kitchen at this point.

          Return it to the stove, and add in the cream. Once that is combined and heated up (while constantly stirring!) you can add in the cheeses. The hard cheese do take longer to melt in, so keep stirring and have patience.

          While that is going one, throw some olive oil in a pan, and sear your veggies.

          If you want it thicker, use some cornstarch to thicken it up.

          Voila, sauce is done!
