Simple Fettuccine Alfredo

Simple Fettuccine Alfredo

My mom got this recipe from a friend many years ago. It’s so easy and can be made with fettuccine noodles or spaghetti noodles (that’s how we ate it most of the time growing up).

1 qt. heavy whipping cream

1 stick butter

1 container (8oz.) parmesan cheese

1 lb. noodles (spaghetti or fettuccine), cooked, drained

Grilled chicken (optional)

In a large pot, warm sweet whipping cream and butter until butter is melted. Turn off heat and blend in parmesan cheese. Cover and let stand till thickened. Stir in cooked noodles and let stand. Add chicken (optional). Salt to taste. Enjoy!

    if You want to change things up try replacing the butter and cream with Sour cream and then stir in some Parmesan
    Simple but really tasty

      Stew beef and sour cream. You would have Beef Stroganoff

    That looks fantastic. We just had chicken alfredo for dinner last night. I’m gonna try this recipe

    Jill…I don’t make the dish exactly like you do, but similar. You might like to add garlic powder and parsley flakes to add flavor.
