This is a recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo, an Italian dish of pasta and cheese. The sauce is made from butter, cream, and Parmesan cheese. It was created in Rome by restaurateur Alfredo di Lelio in 1914 or 1918 and named after him. Today there are many variations on the original recipe, such as adding garlic to the sauce, using more vegetables like broccoli or spinach, replacing some of the creams with chicken broth to make it healthier, or adding sauteed mushrooms. This version uses buttered bread crumbs instead of flour to thicken the sauce for a gluten-free alternative that can be served with rice noodles if desired.
16 ounces of fettuccine noodles, cooked & drained. (The noodles should be left in the pot they were boiled in.)
4 tablespoons butter or margarine. (Margarine is just as good as butter if you don’t have one or the other.)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese.
1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, 1/2 cup heavy cream.
1 tablespoon minced garlic OR 4 cloves chopped garlic
Heat the pot you used to boil noodles back up on medium heat. Add butter or margarine, and let it melt completely. Once butter is melted, add pasta & stir until coated with oil. Next, add the rest of the ingredients (except for Parmesan cheese) to the pot. Stir continuously for 5 minutes or until the pasta has thickened up a bit and turned slightly brownish in color. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top, serve immediately! Serves 4 people hungry enough to eat 2 servings each.
