Fettuccine Alfredo

This is THE BEST Fettuccine Alfredo I've ever had! It's so simple and only has 4 ingredients. AND it's from The Pioneer Woman, so you can't go wrong. I trust her...with ALL my cooking needs - and probably a lot more. She's just pure genius!! Try won't be disappointed. Although you might have to stop eating for several days after to even out your calorie intake! Now EAT THIS!!! and then hit the treadmill...

1 stick butter
1 cup heavy cream (I used half and half)
1 lb Fettuccine noodles
2 cups Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions.

In a saucepan or skillet, warm butter and cream. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Grate Parmesan cheese and place half of it into a large serving bowl. Pour warm butter/cream mixture over the top.

Drain pasta and immediately pour it into the bowl.
Toss a couple of times, then sprinkle in the other half of the Parmesan.

Toss to combine, thinning with pasta water if necessary.
Serve immediately as a main course or accompaniment to meat or salad.

  1. I just made those chocolate molten cakes...oh my gosh they are soooo delicious!!!!!! We made a homemade caramel sauce to drizzle on top of them and added the vanilla ice cream per your suggestions....yum!!! You should try the caramel sauce...we doubled this recipe... 1/4 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup brown sugar,a pinch of salt,a pinch of cinnamon and a dash a vanilla. Bring to a boil for 3 minutes, whisking the entire time, and let sit until thickened. It was very good :) I'm glad you have this food blog :)
