"Recipe courtesy of Russell Bellanca, owner of Alfredo’s of Rome. The Original Fettuccine Alfredo was created in 1914 by Alfredo Di Lelio, concocted to tempt the palate of his pregnant wife who had lost her appetite. Until now, the Original Fettuccine Alfredo has been a secret recipe, passed on from generation to generation. At the Alfredo restaurants, the fettuccine noodles are made fresh daily from a mix of three different flours, durum and organic eggs. For home use, however, the cook can purchase fresh fettuccine noodles at most supermarkets and deli's."

"the addition of freshly grated nutmeg to this sauce brings it to another level!! A must in white sauces!"
"I just made this recipe myself & added cut up chicken tenders & fresh baby spinach. I also sauted finely chopped onion & garlic, then reduced 1/4 cup of white wine before adding the cream....very, very good!!! This I will have again & again!"
"Great fettuccine alfredo!!! Loved that this is lightened by not needing to add the cream!! I made 1/2 of the recipe, as the fresh refrigerated fettuccine was a 9 oz. package. I served this with a lemon and herb marinated grilled chicken breast, garlic bread and salad for a wonderful dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe Annacia!!! Made for Stars Tag Game."
"It was very,very good,rich, but good. I also added 20 cloves of garlic to it!!"
"Made this for dinner last night for the kids and I...a perfect choice since DH doesn't care for Fettuccine Alfredo and he had to work. I loved the recipe because it was so simple compared to other Alfredo sauce recipes I have tried in the past. All of the kids went back for seconds and were disappointed when they found out there wasn't any leftovers for lunch. I will definitely be making this again. Made and reviewed for the Best of 2010 Recipe Tag game."
"A friend of mine ate at the original Alfredo's restaurant years ago, and described this wonderful dish to me, so I was very pleased to find this recipe! I don't know who decided to add heavy cream to Fettucine Alfredo, but I think it was gilding the lily. It's delicious the way it is, and so quick and easy to make! Thanks for posting this! Made for Zaar Stars Tag."
"One of my favorite kind of recipes! So simple and tasty. I'm a pasta lover and I love recipes like this. The parmigiano-reggiano cheese adds so much flavor. Thanks for sharing! Made for Gimme 5 tag."
"Simple, quick and delicious side dish! We loved this! Thanks Annacia! Made for PAC fall 2009."
"I must have done something very wrong, because this just didn't turn out for me. I ended up with very buttery noodles floating over a messy gob of melted cheese. It tasted good, but was not something I'd want to present to family or guests. I'll try again, but this time it was not a winner."
"This is positively one of the very best pasta dishes I've ever made or tasted. And it is so simple to make--just 3 ingredients, and a little under 15 minutes total time to prepare. Wow. Thanks for posting such a winning recipe, Annacia. Made for "Please Review My Recipe" tag game, March 2009. Yummy! I'll definitely make this often."
"Excellent recipe! So very simple, yet tastes totally decadent and like you have been slaving over that sauce all afternoon! So just keep it to yourself that you've only spent about 15 minutes on the whole thing! Thank you so much for sharing your delicious recipe Annacia!"
