500 gr (1 lb) of Fettuccine
90 gr (3 oz) of Butter
1 cup of Cream half and Half (315 ml or 10 fl oz)
A pinch of Nutmeg
Salt and Pepper
A bunch of fresh parsley
1 cup and 1/2 of Freshly Grated Parmesan
Ok. about the fettuccine: Or you buy them at your store, or you can make them from scratch as I've taught you in the chapter HOW TO MAKE PASTA HOMEMADE.
Let's start now with the sauce, that is very easy to do: let's melt the butter in a pan over low heat. Add the parmesan and the cream, bringing to boil, while we stir constantly. When the sauce starts to be thick reduce the heat and let's add a pinch of nutmeg, salt and pepper.
At this point cook the fettuccine till they are al dente. drain them and add them in the saucepan with the sauce. Cook the fettuccine with sauce for other 3 or 4 minutes over medium heat and let's add the chopped fresh parsley and some extra grated parmesan.
Mhmmm. Are you getting hungry?
Wanna know more about the story behind Fettuccine Alfredo??
In 1914 a small restaurateur living above his small Rome restaurant was faced with a problem no respectable Roman could endure: the loss of his wife's appetite.
Many months pregnant, Alfredo di Lelio's wife refused all her husband's best dishes. Watching his wife grow weaker, Alfredo made a vow: "I'll invent something so tasty that she will immediately succumb to temptation," remembers Russell Bellanca, co-owner of the U.S. branches of Alfredo the Original of Rome. So late one night in his tiny kitchen, Alfredo dropped a handful of fresh fettuccine egg noodles into a pot of boiling water. He melted butter and Parmegiano Reggiano cheese, and then he mixed in the pasta. Fettuccine Alfredo was born! His wife cleaned her plate, and a short time later, Alfredo II was born to the music of customers downstairs in Alfredo's I's restaurant, all crying for his new irresistible dish.
Today of coarse the original Alfredo's in Rome is lorded over by Alfredo the III. There are branches in the U.S. in Manhattan and Miami Beach as well as in Disney World's Epcot Center.
