Fettuccine Alfredo

I love fettuccine alfredo. It's one of my favorite dishes, and it's so quick and easy to make.
In about 15 minutes you have a wonderful hearty meal.



Here's what you need:
1 stick of butter
2 tbsp of cream cheese
1 clove of minced garlic
1 cup of parmesan cheese
1 pint of heavy cream (or half and half works too)
1/8 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 package of noodles

Cook noodles according to package directions.
Melt butter in a medium sauce pan over low heat
Add garlic, cream, and cream cheese.
Stir occasionaly until cream cheese has melted.
Add salt, pepper, nutmeg, and parmesan cheese to mixture and simmer over low heat until well combined
Remove sauce from heat and allow to thicken for about 5 minutes, then pour over noodles and
Enjoy

  3. Hey Miss Anna ~ This is one of my favorite dishes too! Does it include pasta? Then yes! It's a favorite!

    Kind of a random note but someone input my Inspiring Blogger post in the link list?? Not sure who ~~ it's not a recipe so I'm a bit clueless as to how it got there.??

  6. HISTORY OF ALFREDO DI LELIO CREATOR IN 1908 OF “FETTUCCINE ALL’ALFREDO”, NOW SERVED BY THE GRANDCHILDREN, ALFREDO E ISA DI LELIO, AT THE RESTAURANT “IL VERO ALFREDO” IN ROME, PIAZZA AUGUSTO IMPERATORE 30

    With reference of your article we have the pleasure to tell you the history of our grandfather Alfredo Di Lelio, who is the creator of “fettuccine all’Alfredo” in 1908 in restaurant run by his mother Angelina in Rome, Piazza Rosa (Piazza disappeared in 1910 following the construction of the Galleria Colonna / Sordi).
    Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant “Alfredo” in 1914 in a street in central Rome, after leaving the restaurant of his mother Angelina. In this local spread the fame, first to Rome and then in the world, of “fettuccine all’Alfredo”.
    In 1943, during the war, Di Lelio sold the restaurant to others outside his family.
    In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio decided to reopen with his son Armando his restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30 "Il Vero Alfredo" (“Alfredo di Roma”), which is now managed by his nephews Alfredo and Ines, with the famous “gold cutlery”” (fork and spoon gold) donated in 1927 by two well-known American actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks (in gratitude for the hospitality).
    See also the site of “Il Vero Alfredo” http://www.alfredo-roma.it/.
    We must clarify that other restaurants "Alfredo" in Rome do not belong to the family tradition of "Il Vero Alfredo" in Rome.
    We inform that the restaurant “Il Vero Alfredo” is in the registry of “Historic Shops of Excellence” of the City of Rome Capitale.
    Best regards Alfredo e Ines Di Lelio
