Fettuccini Alfredo

November 15, 2012 at 6:48 pm | Posted in Italian, Main Dish, Meat-less | 2 Comments

This recipe is from AllRecipes, and I doubled it because my two guys love Alfredo sauce.


1 pound fettuccini

1/2 cup butter

2 cups heavy cream

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup fresh parsley, or 1/4 cup dried parsley

Prepare fettuccini according to package directions.

Melt butter on medium-high heat, in heavy-bottom pot.

A whole stick of butter. Paula Deen would be proud of me!

When butter is completely melted, pour in the cream.  Lower heat to medium.

Gently simmer for about five minutes.  Turn to low.

Add garlic, cheese and whisk, so that the cheese melts thoroughly.  Add parsley and serve immediately.


My two taste-testers liked this Alfredo sauce.  My husband commented that I had previously made one that was richer and creamier.  He remembers that it had cream cheese in it.  I found a recipe on AllRecipes that might have been the one, so I copied it off and will try it next time.
