Rampfredo Sauce

A Rampy take on a classic Alfredo

Rampfredo Sauce

2 TBSP Butter

15 Ramps, bulbs, stems & leaves (you can use less, but I like the strong flavor)

1 ½ TBSP All Purpose Flour

1 C Whole Milk

1 tsp Pepper

½ tsp Salt

1 C Grated Parmesan or Romano cheese


Thinly slice ramp bulbs & stems.  Slice leaves in 1” strips, set aside

Sauté in 1 TBSP Butter till bulbs are nearly translucent, then add leaves.  Sauté till wilted, remove from heat & set aside.

Melt 1 TBSP Butter in a sauce pan over low heat.  When melted, douse Butter with Flour & vigorously whisk 3-5 minutes till homogenous.  Add Milk & continue to whisk.  Whisk in Ramps, Salt & Pepper.  

Use a wooden spoon to stir in grated Cheese. 

Use as a sauce for pasta or as a cheesy sauce for steamed vegetables
