Easy Fettuccine Alfredo

Easy Fettuccine Alfredo

A friend of my family passed this recipe on to us years ago. We’ve tweaked it a bit, but it’s pretty much stayed the same over the years and is a great one to whip up when hosting guests for an Italian dinner.

Serves 6

1 lb. fettuccine noodles, cooked & drained

grilled chicken, cooked, cut into strips (optional)


2 T. minced garlic

1 stick (1/2 c.) butter

1 quart heavy whipping cream

1 (8 oz.) container grated parmesan cheese

2 t. basil

salt and pepper to taste

Sauté garlic with butter about 3-5 min., then add cream and cook over medium heat until hot, stirring frequently to prevent scorching. Turn off heat and add parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and basil. Pour over noodles and let stand to allow to thicken. Enjoy!

    I was wondering if you have a recipe for this with more servings? My niece is getting married in June and wants to serve chicken Alfredo. I thought you might have one already adapted from when you still lived at home.

    Thank you.

      Aww! That’s great. No, unfortunately I don’t have a huge version of this recipe, but I think it would be fairly easy to multiply and make for a wedding! You could probably even make ahead and just warm in the oven in large industrial size pans.

    Thank you Jill for this recipe. I need a from scratch fettuccine alfredo recipe. I posted on my blog yesterday that I want to make more dinners from scratch. Usually when I make I get a rotisserie chicken and a jar of Alfredo sauce and serve it over fettuccine noodles. I will need to make this some time. I won’t be making homemade noodles though. Tried that and it was a massive fail!

    Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family 🙂
