I found this recipe recently for fettucine Alfredo. I'm always looking for a good recipe to make this from scratch. We sometimes buy those packets where you just add milk...or worse yet the packaged kind. How many preservative chemicals will you find in there? Ick!
I've tried to be creative and make it with whatever I have in the cupboard or in the fridge. It's either too runny or too thick and you have to chisel it out of the pan. No amount of garlic can compensate for that problem.
So here's a recipe that turned out just right plus it's wicked quick to make after a long day at work. We like to throw shrimp and peas in it and make it a complete meal! I love the one pan method. Makes for an easy cleanup too!
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 stick of butter
1 cup milk or cream
Garlic (we add lots--add what you like)
1 package (8oz) cream cheese
1 package (16oz) fettucine noodles
Bring a pot of water to boil for the noodles. Add the noodles to the boiling water. To make the sauce melt together the cream cheese, garlic and butter over low heat. Add the milk and parmesan cheesse. Whisk until the cheese melts and the mixture becomes smooth. Add salt and and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and pour over the drained noodles and serve immediately.
This makes 6 servings.
