Fettuccine Alfredo


This is a dish that for some reason, I've had some trouble with.  This is the second time that it's been posted. The first wasn't horrible, but, it wasn't great either.  After a bit of trial and error, I have finally achieve success! My Alfredo sauce was either thick as molasses or water like.  Very frustrating!  But, over the weekend, I was able to thin it out just to the right consistency.  
It's so very nice when something finally works :)

Adapted From

1/4 cup butter
1 cup heavy cream
1-1/4 cup grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
approx 1/4 cup parsley, if desired
garlic powder, to taste preference

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add cream. Simmer for approx 5 minutes.  Whisk in cheese and garlic powder.  Heat thoroughly.  Stir parsley.
Toss or spoon over cooked fettuccine noodles.
{if your sauce is too thick, thin out with pasta water gradually}

  1. I love fettucine alfredo! And the sauce sounds sooo simple. Do you think half & half could be substituted for the heavy cream?

  2. Hi Madge! Half and half would work fine, you may need to add a bit of milk to thicken it up if you desired. Thanks for stopping by..enjoy :)
