We love Italian food and I fix it often.  I don’t know how “real” it is, compared to what a true Italian mama would prepare.  We eat it, though.  Tonight I fixed Fettucini Alfredo.  We have had it before.  I found a different recipe at AllRecipes and tried it. It turned out nice and smooth and cheesy.

Ingredients:

1 stick of butter – the real thing

1 8-ounce package of cream cheese

2 cloves of garlic, minced

12-16 ounces of half and half (original recipe called for milk)

6 ounces freshly grated Parmesan

1/8 tsp. ground black pepper

fettucini noodles

Boil a pot of salted water and cook your noodles.

In a heavy-bottomed pot, melt the butter and cream cheese.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI went ahead and added the garlic and pepper.  Use a whisk to make sure that the butter and cheese get mixed well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASlowly add the half and half, continuing to whisk.  The heat should be on medium-high and the sauce should start getting nice and thick.  Add as much half and half as you wish, depending on how thick you want the sauce.

Yum!  Serve with garlic bread.
