Menu Description: "Freshly prepared alfredo or marinara sauce, served warm."

The soft breadsticks served at Olive Garden (here's my clone) taste awesome by themselves, but dunk them in one of these warm sauces and...fahgeddaboutit. You can use these clones as dipping sauces or pour them over the pasta of your choice to duplicate a variety of entree items available at the chain. Use the alfredo sauce over Fettuccine and you get Fettuccine Alfredo. Pour the marinara sauce on Linguine and you've cloned Olive Garden's Linguine alla Marinara. Make up your own dishes adding sausage, chicken or whatever you have on hand for an endless variety of Italian grub.

    • Instructions

      Alfredo Sauce
      Make the alfredo sauce by melting the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic to the butter and cook for 1 minute, then whisk in the cream, cheese, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium/low heat and simmer uncovered for 12 to 15 minutes or until thick, stirring often. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools down.

      Makes 2 1/2 cups.

      Marinara Sauce
      Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute for 1 to 2 minutes or until the garlic begins to turn light brown. Stir in crushed tomatoes, and then add the remaining ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 25 minutes, stirring often.

      Makes 3 cups.
