Make Your Own Fettucine Alfredo

When it comes to classic Italian pasta dishes, Fettuccine Alfredo is easily at the top of the list. So many home cooks fail to recreate the lush, creamy flavor because they use a store bought Alfredo sauce in a jar that doesn’t even come close.

With my simple Alfredo sauce recipe, you will never have to resort to such extreme measures again to have classic Fettuccine Alfredo at home. You should know though, that this is not a recipe for dieters! No matter how hard I have tried over the years, I just can’t make a low-fat version that matches the brilliant flavor.
