Ingredients

1 pound fettuccine pasta
1/4 cup butter (half a stick)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated Romano cheese

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil, liberally salt the water and add pasta. Cook about 7-9 minutes. The pasta will be al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter over medium heat  in a pan large enough to fit the pasta once cooked.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for about 3 minutes.
  4. When the pasta has finished cooking, drain it but do not rinse.
  5. Add the pasta to the pan.
  6. Add cream and cheese.
  7. Mix to coat the pasta.
  8. Cook 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat to low, let pasta stand 5 minutes until sauce thickens.
  9. Toss just before serving.

My friend Val made a really great Christmas Eve fettuccine alfredo with hot sausage and mushrooms that was to die for. I am thinking I should add something to this too. Maybe shrimp and spinach? Sausage and peppers? Broccoli and chicken? Decisions, decisions.

Enjoy!

Delish! Needed a quick dinner for my kiddos and I, this was perfect. I added a little white wine after the butter and garlic were sauted. Next time I may add some shrimp.
