I absolutely love this time-saving creamy mushroom alfredo sauce. We have taken your favorite alfredo sauce and up-leveled it with delicious sauteed mushrooms, garlic, shallots, and herbs. We topped this dish with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

With this recipe, you can easily up-level your favorite jar of store-bought alfredo sauce while keeping it light and maximizing the flavors. You will have an incredible creamy mushroom alfredo sauce ready in no time! Your friends or family will be asking for more.

It is delicious served on pasta, which is Ella’s favorite, and lentils, my favorite. Also, spaghetti squash, spiralized zucchini, or hearts of palm pasta are other great options. Whatever your favorite pasta is, this sauce is incredible and will please everyone who tries it! Also, it is perfect for meal prep!

Ingredients For Mushroom Alfredo Sauce

How To Make Mushroom Alfredo Sauce
  • Shallot: Dice one medium-sized shallot.
  • Mushrooms: Slice the mushrooms and saute them in a pan.
  • Garlic: Adds flavor to the sauce.
  • Italian Herbs, Salt, and Pepper: To season the sauce.
  • Alfredo Sauce: Use your favorite store-bought alfredo sauce.
  • Milk: We used low-fat milk.
  • Parmesan: We love grating fresh parmesan cheese on top.

Which Mushrooms To Use

We used cremini mushrooms, also known as baby Bella mushrooms. Cremini mushrooms have more flavor than white mushrooms. They have an incredible earthy umami flavor that adds dimension to the sauce.

What Alfredo Sauce To Use

You can use your favorite store-bought alfredo sauce in this recipe. We like the black truffle alfredo sauce and regular alfredo sauce from Trader Joe’s. Using a store-bought alfredo sauce saves so much time!

What Milk To Use

We used low-fat milk in this recipe to add creaminess and lighten up the sauce. However, you can use any milk that you prefer.

Use A Shallot Or An Onion

We used one medium-sized shallot in this recipe. If you don’t have a shallot, you can use one small white or sweet onion instead.

How To Uplevel A Jar Of Alfredo Sauce

This recipe is super easy because you can use your favorite store-bought jar of alfredo sauce. We have up-leveled the alfredo sauce by making a sauce with mushrooms. Also, this sauce is packed with flavor from the seasoning. Plus, we lightened it up by adding milk to this mushroom alfredo sauce. You still taste the flavor of the alfredo sauce but the milk helps lighten it up!

How To Make Creamy Mushroom Alfredo Sauce

First, dice your shallot and slice the mushrooms.

Then, boil water for your pasta, lentils, or favorite pasta alternative. Cook it while you make the sauce.

Next, lightly spray a pan with oil. After that, add the shallot, mushrooms, garlic, Italian herbs, salt, and pepper to the pan. Then, saute the mushrooms.

Once the mushrooms are sauteed, add the alfredo sauce and milk to the pan. Then, mix everything and let the sauce simmer on low.

After your pasta is cooked, drain it and add it to the pan with the sauce. Then, mix, serve, grate some fresh parmesan cheese on top, and enjoy!

  • Spiralized zucchini
  • Your favorite pasta
  • Lentils
  • Hearts of palm
  • Spaghetti squash
  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Carba-Nada Low Carb Pasta

How Long Does Mushroom Alfredo Sauce Last?

I like to make this mushroom alfredo sauce and eat it right away. However, this sauce is great for meal prep and you can store leftovers in the refrigerator for 2-4 days.
