"I found this recipe in my "Four Ingredient Cooking" by Joanna Farrow. She states that this is a simple recipe invented by a Roman restaurateur called Alfredo and that he served it with a gold fork and spoon. This recipe says it serves four, but I would imagine alot of people will think it only serves two, so up this recipe as you see fit to serve your families appetites. This is not a garlic flavored recipe but one for the original recipe, so might want to serve with very seasoned tasty main dish/meat. Or you might want to add some minced 1/2 tsp. minced garlic to the butter in the beginning before adding the cream."

"So rich! I've never made it like this before, and I was successful! Both DH and DS scarfed theirs down! And there are leftovers! Woo HOO! Thanks for another winner, diner524!"
"It's perfect! 'Nuff said. Made for Culinary Quest 2014/Cruisin' Culinary Queens."
"I made alfredo sauce years ago but used salted butter and it tasted like we were eating spoonfuls of salt. Wanted to give this recipe a try but used unsalted butter and it was very good. Rich and delicious side dish to grilled chicken breast and broccoli. Made for the 2014 Culinary Quest - Family Picks."
"Nice simple lunch for Ds, and I .. Simple to make and prepare and enjoyed this with some garlic bread. Made for Zaar Stars"
"Hi - You tried some of my recipes during the adoption and just wanted to check out some of your recipes. I have a bunch I want to try, but this one was the first one I made. This is was fantastic! I had to substitute a concoction of 2% Milk and cream cheese for the Heavy Cream, and it was still delish! Can't wait to try more of your recipes."
"What a wonderful side dish! Very simple to prepare and I loved the flavor. I used dry fettuccine and it made 4 perfect side servings. Thanks for a recipe I will be going back to very often! :) Tagged in 123 Hits (Update 4/2010): Diner I just have to tell you how often I make this dish. I do use half and half in place of the heavy cream and sometimes add snow peas and broccoli to the dish and top with some grilled chicken. It is always a dish that is devoured by the family. Thanks again for sharing!"
"Yummy! I doubled this recipe for the family and used spinach fettuccine. We had it as a meatless meal with salad and bread and everyone loved it. The next night, we had the leftovers and we added shrimp - which was a huge hit as well. Thanks diner for such an easy and tasty meal. Made for WTTM Tag."
"Very easy to prepare, and very good. I stuck to recipe, made this as a side-dish, I would happily eat it by itself! I might well add garlic in future, but this was very enjoyable, thank you!! Made for PRMR tag game."
"This recipe was so easy to do. The sauce has a really good taste. It's rich but so yummy. I didn't have fettucine so I have capelli di angelo. Thanks Diner :) Made for 123 hit wonders"
"Simple, fattening and delicious. I will make this again. Thank you."
"Delicious and simple! I served this as a side dish with chicken tonight. I enjoy using fresh fettuccine and this recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing!"
