INGREDIENTS

PASTA

  • For pasta Salt
  • 1 lb Fettuccine noodles
  • 1 cup Pasta water, reserved

ALFREDO SAUCE

  • ½ cup Heavy cream
  • ½ cup Butter
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • To taste Salt
  • To taste Black pepper, freshly ground
  • For garnish Parsley, chopped

METHOD

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Cook fettuccine, stirring occasionally, until just before al dente (a minute less than the package directions). Reserve 1 cup of pasta water. Drain remaining water.
  • In a large skillet, over medium heat, heat cream and butter until bubbling. Whisk in Parmesan cheese, salt and black pepper. Allow sauce to simmer until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Add cooked fettuccine and toss to coat. Add more pasta water (gradually) if needed. Garnish with parsley and serve.

NOTES

  • You can use any long pasta noodle  
  • You can use Grana Padano and/or Pecorino cheese instead of Parmesan 
  • Add a grilled chicken breast or shrimp if you desire 
  • Garlic bread makes a great accompaniment
