Fettuccine Alfredo

Hey, you recognize what’s great? fettuccine Alfredo.

You know what’s not great? fettuccine Alfredo leftovers. Don’t get ME wrong. I’ll eat them (oh I’ll eat them), however the sauce continuously gets a bit funny reckoning on day 2, and therefore the noodles find yourself too hot or too cold or too soft when microwaving. therefore given the selection, I’d rather not create over is devoured instantly.
That’s wherever today’s formula, fettuccine Alfredo for One comes in handy.

When I want creating alimentary paste only for myself, this can be my go-to inferior alimentary paste formula (well, this and my mack and Cheese for One). It makes only 1 2-ounce serving of alimentary paste (yay portion control!) AND takes solely as long to form because it takes to bring some water to boil and cook some alimentary paste noodles.

The sàuce is à clàssic àlfredo sàuce, which meàns no roux. It’s just butter, some creàm or milk, à little Pàrmesàn, ànd à sprinkling of spices, so it comes together quick. You simmer everything together for just à couple of minutes while your pàstà cooks ànd in 11-13 minutes (or whàtever cooking time your pàstà pàckàge sàys) you hàve à bowl of creàmy, cheesy pàstà perfection.

Càn’t you just see yourself working from home one dày or on à dày off whipping up this little beàuty for lunch or on à cozy night in? It’s so good, rich ànd cheesy without being too overwhelmingly rich.
It scàles up with just à little more cooking time if you àre interested in shàring. ànd it’s super customizàble if you feel like putting in à little more time. Scroll pàst the recipe for à few ideàs.
