How can just a few simple ingredients come together so beautifully to form such a rich and creamy sauce? My Fettuccine Alfredo recipe is so super easy, and ever so elegant. Serve it as a side, as a meal, or amp it up with chicken or shrimp. This is definitely one of those “guilty pleasure” recipes that will leave you feeling comfy and cozy!

Try to sync your pasta cooking time and sauce finishing time. Boil a large pot water. When it comes to a boil, add salt and drop in pasta. Be sure to stir so the pasta does not stick together. Stir occasionally with pasta fork. I am in love with DeCecco brand pasta. It cooks perfectly every single time!

Add the butter and garlic to a saucepan on medium heat. You are just trying to melt the butter and infuse with the garlic. Do not brown or burn the garlic.

Allow to cook for about two minutes. Whisk in the heavy whipping cream and allow to come to a slow simmer. Add in the nutmeg and pepper. Simmer for about seven to ten minutes…just until the whipping cream starts to thicken. Stir often so that the cream does not stick to the bottom of the sauce pan.

Add the Parmesan cheese and whisk continuously until a thick and creamy sauce forms. I usually add the cheese in batches…you may not need to use the entire four cups. You are looking for the sauce to thickly coat the back of a spoon!

Stir in handful of fresh chopped parsley. Drain your pasta…do NOT rinse. Place in a big bowl and pour the Alfredo Sauce on top and stir to coat each noodle. Top the Fettuccine Alfredo with a little extra fresh parsley and serve immediately! ENJOY!

LET’S GET SOCIAL!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
