Fettuccine Alfredo

alfredo1

My husband prefers decadent cream sauces to my preferred red, but I’m willing to make the sacrifice to make him happy ūüėČ 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

Directions –

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.
