creamy delicious alfredo sauce

Alfredo sauce is a delicious and creamy pasta sauce, but it can be tricky to reheat. This post will guide you through the best methods of reheating Alfredo sauce so eating your leftovers will be just as delicious as when they were fresh!

My favorite method for reheating alfredo sauce.  This method works because you are using a low heat to warm up the sauce slowly while whisking it to keep the sauce emulsified.



Add cold leftover alfredo sauce with or without pasta to a nonstick skillet or small saucepan, and turn to medium-low heat. Add a little water or milk to the sauce to loosen it up.

Gently break up the sauce/pasta and mix it together as the sauce heats up. If reheating sauce only, use a whisk. Continue stirring until the sauce is warmed throughout and creamy.

This method is best for reheating large quantities of sauce. The oven method works because it's a gentle heating method to warm the sauce slowly. Just be sure to mix occasionally and add liquid as needed to keep the sauce creamy.



Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Add Alfredo sauce to an oven-safe dish with a splash of water or milk. Cover the dish with aluminum foil. This will keep the sauce from drying out.

next  step


Heat the dish in the oven for about 10 minutes, then stir. Add more liquid if it becomes too dry. Repeat until the sauce and pasta is warmed throughout and creamy.

This is the quickest and easiest method for reheating Alfredo sauce! Reheating at short intervals on low power is the key to getting Alfredo sauce not to break using the microwave method.



Add Alfredo sauce to a microwave-safe bowl with a splash of milk or water. Reheat at 50% power for 30 second increments, stirring in between, until the sauce is warmed throughout and creamy.
