The regular recipe says it serves 4. However I always make a ton more. The last time I made this recipe I multiplied the recipe by 8. YES, 8! That made enough for 2 boxes of 16oz pasta (and we ate it for 2 meals) The sauce reheats really well if you haven’t mixed it with your pasta! What I do is only mix enough sauce with the pasta I think we will eat for that meal. I then put the rest of the sauce in the fridge and then reheat it in a saucepan when we want to have an easy meal or feed a starving boy! It doesn’t reheat well once it is mixed with your pasta!
Super Easy Fettuccine Alfredo
3 T half and half (or light cream)
1/3 c grated Parmesan cheese ( I use shredded)
1 T butter
4 oz of packaged fettuccine or whatever kind of pasta you want
Make your pasta how you normally do.
In a separate pot add the above ingredients and heat, I stir it quite a bit, especially after it starts to melt. I like to use a silicone whisk. Once it is all heated and the cheese is melted and blended together and you have drained your pasta just pour the alfredo sauce onto your noodles. We like to add a little garlic salt to it once it is on our plates! Oh and freshly ground pepper is great too! (by the way, if your children happen to add food coloring to your half and half as an April Fool’s Joke you may have blue Fettuccine Alfredo…yes, we know from experience)
This recipe goes great with fresh french bread that I “fancy up”. I buy mine at Walmart when I don’t have time to make my own. I like to spray some olive oil onto the top of the loaf. Then I sprinkle some garlic salt and garlic powder on top and finish it off with a little parmesan cheese. Then I wrap my loaf in foil and heat it in the oven. 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes usually does the trick. YUMMY! I just slice it up and throw it on a plate or bowl to serve it!
