I’ll admit it.  It’s not health food.  But it’s good.  And easy.  And delicious.

And all things in moderation, right?

I highly recommend pouring yourself a glass of your favorite wine to enjoy with this pasta.  I mean really, you’ve already blown the diet, why not enjoy this meal to its fullest?  I give you permission.

Fettuccine Alfredo
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 4

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 10 oz. fettuccine

  1. Fill a pot for the pasta with about 6 quarts of water, place over high heat, and bring to boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, put the butter and heavy cream in a 12 inch skillet and place over medium high heat. Add garlic, nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Cook until the sauce has thickened and cream has reduced by about one-third, about 2 minutes. Add the Parmesan cheese and stir until it is melted. Remove from heat.
  3. When pasta is done, drain well, and transfer to the pan with the sauce. Toss well and serve.
