I love alfredo and wanted an easy recipe that my 7 yr old daughter could make. The key for me was letting her chose the type of pasta to use. When she made this recipe, she chose penne AND rotoni. This is a recipe everyone can enjoy and anyone can make in many variations.
- 1 lb pasta
- 1⁄2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- Boil pasta in 4-6 quarts of water on stove top for about 8 minutes. While pasta is cooking, melt 1 stick of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in heavy cream, parmesan and salt and pepper to melted butter. Drain pasta and put back on stove oever low heat. Pour alfredo sauce over noodles and stir until pasta is well covered. ENJOY!
DH loves fettucini alfredo and this recipe was a winner. I used fettucini noodles and unsalted butter. Omitted the salt and added fresh ground pepper. Creamy and rich alfredo noodles, takes no time to make, and DH asked me to make the noodles again! Made and reviewed for Pick A Chef Fall 2009.
