AlFREDO? Don’t Be!

Tonight we celebrated my DH’s birthday! He loves Fettucine Alfredo, but I don’t make it that often.  It’s one of those dinners where you feel like your arteries may clog after you eat it! But, my gosh is it AMAZING! And super SUPER simple to make. Don’t be AFRAID to try this recipe.

*Recipe for Alfredo Sauce
2 Sticks of Butter/Margarine
2-3 Cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
3 Cups Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Melt Butter and Heavy Whipping Cream in sauce pan over low heat. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste. Viola!

Stir in fettucine noodles and feel free to add in vegetables like broccoli! Or, add in boiled or sautéed chicken pieces. Yumm! Scallops or shrimp are delicious too!

*TIP:  Use the Parmesan cheese in block form.  It may seem elusive, but if you hit Wal-Mart or Kroger at the right time it is typically located near the Deli!

Block Parmesan cheese works best!

Use this for the Parmesan cheese!

Eating healthy?  Substitute the Heavy Whipping Cream for Half and Half or Cream Cheese.  (It helps cut calories…a little!)

**Also, be on the lookout for a how-to on making homemade noodles Fun, Fun, Fun!
