- Add fettucine pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente and drain Melt butter in a large skillet and add chopped garlic.

Very easy to prepare--could definitely use a kick of pepper, but was also good as is. I appreciated the reminder to mix the egg apart from the pan, as it really prevents the scrambled egg effect! Served with garlic bread and caesar salad, this is an easy weeknight meal. Thanks for posting, Nimz!
One o the best fettucine alfredo recipes that I have ever made! Quick and easy to put together, but rich and creamy-my family devoured it! Thanks Nimz for another great recipe! I made this for Spring PAC 2009.
Delicious! I made this as a main dish with a side of salad and bread. Very simple, very rich, and very good. Thanks Nimz for sharing.
