Learn how to make creamy parmesan sauce with this Creamy Parmesan Sauce recipe that’s better than Olive garden! You just need heavy cream, garlic, Parmesan cheese, butter, flour and some seasonings! It is easier to make than you might think!
Last week I shared with you my Chicken Lombardy recipe. Lenny and I discovered Chicken Lombardy when we took our youngest son out to eat at Olive Garden for his 19th birthday. Lenny and Owen both had the Chicken Lombardy and LOVED it. This lightly breaded chicken is topped with provolone cheese and a Creamy Parmesan Sauce.
So, I did a little experimenting in my kitchen and I was able to re-create this Olive Garden favorite. In fact, I think it turned out better than their sauce. So much better that I dare call it the “Better than Olive Garden Parmesan Sauce Recipe!”
Creamy Parmesan Sauce Recipe
Lenny said this Sauce really was the creamiest and most flavorful sauce he’s tasted! This sauce, of course, was perfect on the Chicken Lombardy, but makes a great sauce for just about any Italian dish where you want to use a creamy, flavorful Parmesan cheese.
The ingredients for this creamy recipe are simple: heavy cream, garlic, fresh parmesan cheese, parsley salt and some butter and flour for the roux. Simple, right?!
What You’ll Need
There’s not a lot that you’ll need to simply make this sauce. You’ll need a couple of small sauce pans, a whisk, measuring cups and spoons and a knife to chop the garlic.
So, give it a try and let me know how you liked it and how you used it. Looking forward to hearing all about your yummy endeavors.
