Recipe Tips & Variations

  • Mix and match shrimp, scallops or crab meat!
  • Be sure to use heavy cream, not whipping cream.
  • Use freshly grated parmesan cheese! Try a microplane or a food processor to grate the cheese quickly.
  • Use fresh garlic (or pre-minced garlic in a jar), not garlic powder.
  • Add a pinch of red pepper flakes before stirring the pasta and sauce together, if you want to kick up your Alfredo up a notch!

Storing & Freezing

Storing: Leftovers will keep for about 3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator, but you may want to add a splash of milk when you reheat.

Freezing: Lobster Alfredo is best served fresh, however you can freeze it in a freezer safe zip top bag, laying flat in the freezer for up to 3 months.

FAQ

Can I use a different type of cheese other than parmesan?

Yes! Fresh parmesan can be expensive, so Romano is a perfect substitute. Romano is used often in place of fresh parmesan.

How do I thicken Alfredo sauce?

Make a slurry of 1 tablespoon water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed together. Add it to the sauce, stir, and bring to a simmer. The sauce will thicken in a few minutes.

How do I thin my Alfredo sauce?

If your sauce is too thick, add a splash of milk or cream to thin it out to your desired consistency. You can also add some cooking pasta water and toss to combine.

What do I eat with lobster Alfredo?

Some crusty bread or garlic bread and a green salad with Italian dressing are the perfect compliments to this meal.
