How to Make the Best Fettuccine Alfredo
First you’ll need to gather up all of the ingredients which include parmesan cheese, fettuccine, butter and heavy cream. You can find parmesan cheese at your local grocery stores such as Wal Mart of Kroger.
For this recipe I use one whole wedge of parmesan plus less than half of another parmesan wedge. So first things first grate the cheese and set it aside.
Now boil the pasta just to al dente. If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s soggy pasta. So please be sure to not overcook the fettuccine. While the pasta is boiling Take out a pot and heat it over medium heat. Melt the butter in the pot and add in the heavy cream. Season it with lots of black pepper.
Add in about half of the grated parmesan cheese and stir.
Now remove the pot from heat. Once the pasta is done drain it and it to the pot of sauce. Top it with the remaining cheese. Toss it really well to make sure the pasta is coated in the sauce.
That’s it! See how quick and easy it is to make? I don’t use any salt other than for the pasta water in the recipe because the parmesan cheese is salty enough for me.
