Decadent Fettucine Alfredo Sauce

Total Time

Cook 15 mins

How can something so simple to prepare be so tasty? Love this sauce on al dente fettucine noodles and French bread.


  1. Melt butter in saute pan; do not let brown.
  2. Add cream, and bring the mixture to a soft boil.
  3. Add parmesan cheese and cook until cheese is melted, and mixture becomes thicker (and it will thicken as it cools).
  4. Add a sprinkle of ground nutmeg, salt and white pepper to taste.
  5. Pour over al dente fettucine noodles.

Fantastic Sauce!!! I made this to serve over fettucine pasta, along with a baked proscuitto stuffed chicken breast and salad, so good!! I followed this as written, except I left out the dash of nutmeg, as we have tried that in the past and weren't fond of that added flavor to the sauce/pasta. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for 2013 Spring "Pick A Chef" event.
