Adds a creamy kick to pasta…
Ready to spice your typical Alfredo sauce up a notch? Adding in a little cayenne pepper powder is an excellent way to start, whether it’s Fettuccine Alfredo, chicken, or another concoction. But you don’t need to stop there – try experimenting with crushed red pepper and even hot sauce, too. A tiny dash of Sriracha or Tabasco can add a unique twist to the flavor.
We start here with the simple Alfredo base with cayenne. Enjoy playing with the sauce from there.

Spicy Alfredo Sauce
Over medium heat, combine the butter and garlic in a saucepan. Stir until the butter is melted and the garlic is fragrant.
Add the heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, and cayenne. Stir the sauce until the cheese is melted.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and add in the salt and pepper. Stir until combined.
- Serve with pasta.
No cayenne pepper powder? Use 2 tablespoons of crushed red pepper instead. Want extra heat? Try a dash of hot sauce to spice things up. A dash of Sriracha will add a little more garlic flavor, while Tabasco will provide more tang.
