Fettuccine Alfredo is a classic Italian cuisine fare! The key ingredients are Fettuccine pasta, Parmesan cheese and butter, making it one of the simplest pasta recipes of all time. Italian chef Alfredo Di Lelio invented this dish after whom the recipe takes its name.
It is very mild yet pungent on the palate and extremely easy to make. Hence, I made it on my brother’s birthday party and it was an instant favourite of all! You had to have more than a single helping!
So without further ado, go ahead and recreate this beautiful Fettuccine Alfredo, and let it awaken your senses like never before!
500g Fettuccine pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
6 tbsp butter
2 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 tsp black pepper powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
2 tsp salt

Step 1: Boil half a pan, about 10 cups, of water with 1 tsp salt. Add the Fettuccine pasta and olive oil. Boil on medium heat till the pasta is just cooked. Drain and set aside.
Step 2: Heat the butter in a large pan. Add the minced garlic. Sauté well. Lower the flame and pour in the cream. Give it a good mix.
Step 3: As the cream begins to simmer, add the Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese in the pan. Mix well so that lumps are not formed.
