This recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo is a simple yet spectacular dish that’s a perfect one for midweek dinner.
Serve up this creamy, quick pasta dish for a last minute dinner party and impress your friends!
I use cream, butter and Parmesan cheese. It’s a lovely sight as the cheese melts into the cream and forms this smooth, luxurious coating on the fettuccine. It truly is heaven on a plate!
When I was a kid this was one of my very favorite things to eat. I have to admit, I don’t eat it so much anymore because of the fat content. I save it for the occasions I feel like indulging.
I know there are a ton of low fat versions out there, but I can’t say that to me they are ever the same. I love the buttery richness of the creamy sauce.
I may not have it often, but I’d rather have it less often than scrimp on the flavors I expect from an Alfredo sauce.
I sometimes add shrimp or chicken to this dish. I like it with shrimp best. I saute them in some butter with a bit of salt and pepper and add them right at the end.
This is a versatile dish that’s easy to adapt. Just add Chicken, shrimp or broccoli and you have a whole new dish!
So use up the leftovers in your fridge with this hearty family supper recipe!
