To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo


"This is a recipe that I created by modifying my mother's recipe. My boyfriend is a fettuccine Alfredo connoisseur and he scrapes the pan every time! I get nothing but rave reviews when I make this dish. I must warn you, this recipe is not for the health conscious. Enjoy!"

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add fettuccini and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter into cream over low heat. Add salt, pepper and garlic salt. Stir in cheese over medium heat until melted; this will thicken the sauce.
  3. Add pasta to sauce. Use enough of the pasta so that all of the sauce is used and the pasta is thoroughly coated. Serve immediately.

True to its claim! It really is to die for. I used some chopped fresh basil from my garden and added more Parmesan and Romano. This sauce is wonderful over Penne Rigate with shrimp, scallops and...

I fixed this one night and loved it.. Only now it has ruied me for Olive Gardens, because this is so much better then theirs.

Very buttery! I think half the butter would have worked fine. But I am also a picky alfredo sauce eater, so others may think it was wonderful.

I am writing a review of my own recipe in response to some of the reviews... ...So that everyone knows, this is an authentic Italian (Olive Garden is NOT Italian) recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo,...
