Today was one of those days I didn't have plan for dinner. I didn't feel like cooking but I also didn't want to spend $50-$70 on going out to eat. So I looked in my fridge and saw heavy cream. I immediately looked for Parmesan cheese and realized it was going to be a Fettuccine Alfredo for dinner. I have a recipe I found in one of my cooking magazines. I have about 3 different recipes but this I found was the most easy to make and the most delish. Try it and let me know what you think.
4 tbs butter
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup Parmesan
salt and pepper
1 box of fettuccine
In a large pot with salted water, boil fettuccine pasta until al dente, about 12 minutes depending on the size you have. Drain and reserve about a cup of the water just in case the sauce gets too thick. In another large saute pan melt butter. Add heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper. Let it come to a simmer and get thicker. Add pasta and about 1 cup Parmesan cheese and toss together. add reserved water if needed.
Boiling pasta can be very easy if you just follow instructions from box or bag. They usually give something like 8-10 minutes or 11-13 minutes. I have learned that in order to get it perfect every time I pick the first number and set my timer. If you are going to add it to the sauce, remove pasta a minute or two earlier than that.
