My Family’s Favorite Recipe: Fettucine Alfredo

This particular recipe serves about 12.

2-2 1/2 pounds Fettucine noodles (prepared as per the instructions)

1 1/2 cup butter approx

15 cloves chopped garlic

3 c. heavy cream (see, told you it’s fattening)

3 egg yolks

6 cups fresh parmesan cheese

1/2 c. dried parsley

Optional: sun dried tomatoes, broccoli, black olives, mushrooms, garlic,  shrimp or chicken to add into the mix…so YUMMMMMMY!


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add fettucine pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

In a large skillet melt the butter and add the chopped garlic. Cook on low for about 5 minutes. Stir often and try not to burn the garlic.

Pour about a 1/4 cup of the heavy cream into a smallish bowl and add the egg yolk. Beat together; put aside.

Pour the remaining cream into the frying pan on medium high. Mix rapidly with whisk as cream boils. Slowly add the cream/egg mixture because you don’t want the egg to curdle!

Whisk until well blended. Add 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese and continue to mix the cream. Pour in the remaining Parmesan Add the parsley Mix until smooth. Immediately remove from stove.

Serve over cooked pasta. Garnish with fresh parsley.
