Fettucine Alfredo is thought to have been invented by Alfredo di Lelio I in 1914 at his restaurant, Alfredo, in Rome. It was made famous when newly wed A list movie star couple Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks fell in love with the dish on their honeymoon in 1920. It’s been a huge favorite world wide ever since.
This is actually the original recipe from Chef Alfredo. It is so simple, easy, fast and amazingly delicious. Wow your date or special someone or create a great family dinner treat. Use variations. It’s not for every night but everything in moderation! People will never forget you after you serve this one!
SUPER Fast & Easy Amazing Authentic Fettuccine Alfredo:
-2 heaping tbsp of whipped sweet butter (land of lakes is one; its found where the butter section is; you can use regular butter but whipped tastes best)
-box of fettuccine, cooked.
-1/2 cup cream
-pepper to taste (lots of it for most)
-3 tbsp parmigiano-reggiano or parmesan cheese (or any other hard cheese)
-broccoli florets or roasted veggies
-chopped up cooked Bacon or Pancetta
Put the butter and the cream on medium heat in a large pan and begin to melt the butter. Don’t brown it and be patient. When the butter is near melted add in the COOKED fettuccine. Then add 3 tbsp of cheese. Add optional items such as chicken, peas, broccoli or roasted veggies. I love it with broccoli and chicken.
*cook very quickly. After the fettuccine is in the pan, cooking should only take a couple of minutes and then you are done.
Put it on a plate and top with freshly ground pepper and optional cheese. Serve with crusty French bread and wine. Wow!
