Fettuccine Alfredo with Homemade Alfredo Sauce: Table for Seven

It's a classic! Creamy, cheesy Alfredo sauce made on top on your favorite fettuccine noodles.

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. Frustrating.

Over the weekend, I was able to thin it out just to the right consistency.  It's so good and so simple. 

Forget about buying a jar and make your Alfredo homemade instead!

  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 :)
