Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

About ten years ago, I had a mentor at my little church.  When I learned that she had a fettuccine Alfredo recipe, I was so excited.  Derek and I hadn't been dating for too long at that point, but I already knew that it was one of his favorite dishes to order at a restaurant.

The amazing part is that it is so, so easy to make!  Seriously!  It's also even easier if you use leftover chicken from your freezer to go with it!  (I like to roast a big chicken.  Then I serve it for two meals and the remaining chicken goes in the freezer for meals such as this.  The chicken is flavored so much better than if you just pan-fry chicken breast.)  The other option for excellent chicken to prepare with this dish is to grill it.  Yum.  My husband likes when I serve this chicken and broccoli.  

Both of my children love fettuccine Alfredo!  Other than processed/packaged meals the only other main dish that we all like is spaghetti.

Have I convinced you yet?  I hope you'll give fettuccine Alfredo a try!

Fettuccine Alfredo
1 16 oz package of fettuccine (or pasta choice)
1/2 c melted butter
1 c grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 c whipping cream
salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Meanwhile, combine melted butter with remaining ingredients.  Mix well.  Drain pasta.  Pour sauce over hot pasta and toss lightly.  Serve on warm platter.

It's so easy!!  Since I tend to cook from my pantry and freezer, the hardest thing for me is buying the whipping cream.

Can anyone tell me why Alfredo gets capitalized?

I love homemade Alfredo sauce, too! Have you ever tried adding some minced garlic to your butter as it melts? I really like to have a hint of garlic flavor in my Alfredo sauce.
