Fettuccine Alfredo

In case you can’t tell I love pasta, any kind of pasta, and cheese, any kind of cheese! So Fettuccine Alfredo is a hit in our house. The blend of butter, heavy cream and Parmesan Cheese make this an easy winner for my #30daysofdairy recipe collection.

This easy pasta dish is not one to be scared of. It can be served solo as a main dish plain or with chicken or shrimp as a topper, or can be served as a side dish.

Prep time

Total time
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 lb. fettuccine pasta (dry or fresh)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add fettuccine and cook according to package instructions until al dente; drain.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter into cream over low heat. Add salt and pepper to season.
  3. Stir in Parmesan cheese over low heat and stir until melted. The cheese will thicken the sauce some.
  4. Add the pasta to sauce in saucepan and toss gently to coat pasta. (I usually add ¾ of the pasta and toss. Then check if more pasta is needed so that the sauce is used but too much pasta is not used.) Serve immediately.
