Fettuccine Alfredo

Make this basic sauce and then add you favorite spices, herbs, or veggies. I have included three of my favorite variations.

Fettuccine Alfredo
1 ¼ cup Cream

4 tbs Butter

¾ cup Parmesan Cheese

½ teaspoon Nutmeg

1 ½ cup Fettuccine Pasta

Cook pasta in a large pan according to package directions.

Heat cream and butter in pan and bring to a light boil stir frequently. Add Parmesan and nutmeg to cream and stir until cheese is melted. Mix pasta and cream sauce.

Serve with a salad and Garlic Bread

Zucchini Fettuccine

Slice one zucchini into long thin slices, like fettuccine pasta.

Cook zucchini in a pan with 1/2 tablespoon little butter, add to the cream with pasta.

Lemon Peas Fettuccine

Boil 3/4 cup peas in a small amount of water for about 5 minutes, or add to pasta while cooking. Add 1 teaspoon lemon juice to the cream sauce with the nutmeg.

Garlic Fettuccine
Saute 2 cloves crushed garlic in 1/2 tablespoon butter. Add cream to sauteed garlic and follow above directions.
