Well, I don't know why I didn't just go with this one to begin with. Pioneer Woman is pretty much a go-to site around here. In any case, I finally tried another Alfredo sauce recipe last night and it was straight off the PW website. Pretty tasty, even though it completely lacks garlic!
1 pound fettuccine noodles
1 stick butter
1 cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Dash of nutmeg
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
You may also want to gather a few other items. For example, do you have a beautiful serving dish like this?
Good! now, you may need some assistance with this recipe. Do you have a sous chef?
Super! now, if you have a spill, do you have a floor cleaner (or two)?
Alrighty then, you are ready to proceed! Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the cream to warm through.
Put a cup of the Parmesan in the serving bowl.
When the cream and butter are warmed, pour it over the Parm.
Take a sip of wine.
Let the cream mix and the cheese get cozy on their own. Is the pasta ready? Drain it and add it directly to the fray.
Give it a toss.
Put the rest of the Parm on top.
Check in with the kitchen staff:
Mix the pasta together adding in a bit of hot water if needed. I cooked some chicken to add to the mix as well.
I think they liked it!!!
Quick, easy and delicious. A trifecta indeed :)
