Feel like eating awesome Italian food but don’t want to go out? Why not make it yourself?! Here is an awesome recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo that my husband and I carefully crafted and is sure to delight. If you’re watching your figure though, this recipe is definitely not for you, but it will make your tummy happy if you do. ^_^
You will need:
- 1/2 Cup (1 stick) of butter
- 1 Pint heavy whipping cream
- 2/3 Cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (plus a little extra for topping)
- 2 Cloves fresh garlic, crushed
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- dash of salt to taste
- 1 box of fettuccine noodles
Start the water boiling for the noodles while you get the cheese grated and the garlic de-skinned then add the noodles once it’s boiling. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter an add the garlic, saute for a minute or so. Next, add the cream and pepper and simmer on low, do NOT boil. Simmer for a minute then add the cheese and continue to simmer the sauce for about 8 minutes or until it thickens.
Spoon sauce over fettuccine noodles, top with a little parmesan and enjoy! ^_^
I like to add cooked chicken as well, I usually cook the chicken right before I make the sauce and keep it warm in the pan until the sauce is finished. Super yummy!
