Fettucini Alfredo

30 Dec

Oh alfredo sauce, you are so delicious. Why must you be so unhealthy??

But, all things in moderation, right? Right. Needless to say, I don’t make this meal TOO often, but it’s a yummy treat every once in a while. This is a simple recipe and like most recipes I love, it’s great for customization! I usually add grilled chicken and broccoli, but all kinds of meats and vegetables would work. Hmm, maybe I’ll try prosciutto and spinach next…?

Yum : )

Fettucini Alfredo

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Butter
3 cloves Garlic, Minced
2 and 1/2 cups Heavy Cream
1 and 1/2 cups Parmesan Cheese
2 Tbsp Cream Cheese
1 pound Fettucini Pasta, Cooked Per Package Directions
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 dash Salt

Directions:
Melt the butter in a skillet and lightly saute the garlic.

Add the cream and bring to a simmer.

Add the parmesan and cream cheese and allow to melt. Add salt and pepper.

Mix with the cooked (and drained) pasta. Add any other meats or vegetables as desired and mix together. Top with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and serve.

    Approved by an almost-toddler! Toddler variation: 6oz whole grain rotini, 1/4 of the alfredo sauce, omit salt & pepper. Sweet little girl thought it was quite “yum-mmm-mmm.”

    Easy to prepare with a hungry almost-toddler in one arm, too!
