Fettuccine Alfredo

I have always wanted to make Alfredo sauce but never was able to go through it after seeing all the butter and cream used for this sauce but sometimes in life we just gotta do what we want to for a long time.  Now I am so happy today that I have actually finally made the Alfredo sauce which I have been dreading for a long time.  Now I can sleep peacefully...

I found these fancy nest shaped fettuccine at the grocery store but they never stayed  like a nest after cooking...
Alfredo sauce.  Yummmo with all the extra calories
the end result....a good looking handsome pasta.


  •  1 pound Fettuccine Noodles
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese


Cook pasta according to package 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.
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.
