Fettuccine Alfredo is such an easy dish to make, that's what I love about it so much. My boyfriend doesn't really enjoy pasta as much as I; He'd rather eat a much of sweets and gummy bears. He's a big fan with sweets like I. That why I was surprised to hear him as me to make Fettuccine Alfredo for him today.
Didn't take long at all to make. It's pretty easy, simple and fast to make. Came out really good and creamy, and my boyfriend was really satisfied with it. I think he ate a bit to much though... He was so full that he couldn't get out of bed! His excuse was, "It was just so good..."
18 ounces fettuccine pasta
2 1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
12 tbsp. butter (1 1/2 cups)
2 cups parmesan cheese
2 tsps. grated lemon zest
Pinch of grated nutmeg
Ground white pepper
1. Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling water until tender, but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally. About 4 minutes. Drain.
2. Stir 2 cups of heavy cream and lemon juice in a heavy large skillet to blend. Add the butter and cook over medium heat just until the butter melts, stirring occasionally. About 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
3. Add the pasta to the cream mixture and toss. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream, and parmesan to the cream sauce in the skillet. Add the lemon zest, nutmeg, salt, and white pepper. Toss the pasta mixture over low heat until the sauce thickens. About 1 minute. Serve.
