Fettuccine Alfredo

One of my most favorite pasta dishes! Be sure to serve with crusty bread smothered with unsalted butter and a vinaigrette dressed salad!


  • 1 lb. fettuccine
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Cook fettuccine al dente according to package directions.

Drain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water, and using the same pot melt the butter over medium heat. Add the cream and 1/2 of the reserved pasta water and bring to a simmer.

Add the fettuccine and the Parmesan cheese and toss. Season with salt and pepper and add more pasta water if a thinner sauce is desired. Place on serving plate(s), garnish with the extra Parmesan and serve.

  • 1 large pkg. cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese


Cube cream cheese. Add this and the rest of the ingredients to a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on medium until everything is hot. Serve over fettuccine or your favourite pasta.


* Note: The sauce thickens once it starts cooling. Add more milk to thin it.

Easy Fettucini Alfredo

This recipe was delicious. The reason I decided to try it was that I did not have heavy cream in the house. I liked that the recipe called for milk. I was pleasantly surprised out how fabulous it was!

Sadly, this recipe isn't meant for high altitude because mine turned out to be more soup-like than a sauce. One small note I have to ask the cook: what is your definition of a "large" package - concerning the cream cheese? If you'd had the package size, my attempt might have turned out better.
