Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe
Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe – Classic sauce made using butter and Parmesan cheese that blankets the fettuccine noodles for a quick and easy meal.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
- 12 ounces fettuccine pasta
- 1/2 stick of butter, cubed
- 3/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
In a large pot, cook the fettuccine pasta according to the package instructions until the pasta is al dente. Reserve 2 cups of the water prior to draining the pasta and set this aside.
Using the same large pot that you cooked the pasta in pour in 1 cup of the pasta water that you set aside. Turn to a low simmer and whisk in the butter stirring until it melts and then slowly add in the grated parmesan cheese.
If you would like a thinner sauce, then add in more of the reserved pasta water. Once the butter and cheese have melted, toss in the pasta, and stir until the noodles are thoroughly coated.
Remove the fettuccine alfredo from the heat, serve topped with more freshly grated parmesan and salt, and pepper to taste.
