My husband prefers decadent cream sauces to my preferred red, but I’m willing to make the sacrifice to make him happy 😉 I’m already planning on going to the gym in the morning! Any exercise after such a fat-filled, dairy-tastic meal has to be better than no exercise at all! This recipe makes about 6-8 servings and sadly, does not reheat well. Thanks for reading, enjoy!
Fettuccine Alfredo – adapted from The Pioneer Woman
- 1 pound Fettuccine Noodles
- 1 stick Butter
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- 2 cups Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
In a saucepan or skillet, warm butter and cream. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Grate Parmesan cheese and place half of it into a large serving bowl. Pour warm butter/cream mixture over the top. Reserve some of the pasta water, then drain pasta and immediately pour it into the bowl.
Toss a couple of times, then sprinkle in the other half of the Parmesan. Toss to combine, thinning with pasta water if necessary. Serve immediately as a main course or accompaniment to meat or salad.
