Ingredients:

  • 450 grams fettuccine pasta
  • 6 tablespoons butter/margarine
  • 1 minced garlic clove (or 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder)
  • 1½  cups heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons parsley (optional)
  • Chicken or shrimp (optional)

 

 

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, heat water over high heat until boiling. Add salt
  2. Once it is boiling, add fettuccine and cook according to package instructions. 
  3. In a large pan, heat butter over medium heat. 
  4. Once butter is melted add garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. 
  5. Stir in heavy cream and let it cool and reduce for 5 to 8 minutes. 
  6. Add half of the parmesan cheese to the mixture and stir well until smooth. Keep over heat and whisk well until cheese is melted.
  7. Save some pasta water. The pasta water is full of flavor and can be used to thin out the sauce.
  8. Toss alfredo sauce with fettuccine pasta and add half of the parmesan cheese. Also add in chicken or shrimp if you're adding it.
  9. Once it is tossed, garnish with the remaining parmesan cheese. 
  10. Add a little pasta water if the sauce needs to be thinned out.
  11. Garnish with Italian parsley, if you want.
