How to Make Creamy & Easy Fettuccine Alfredo


  1. Place the butter in a large heatproof bowl. Using a wooden spoon or an electric mixer set on low speed, beat until smooth. Add the cream and Parmesan cheese. Stir until well blended; set aside.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions.
  3. Drain well and immediately add the hot pasta to the butter mixture in the large bowl. Using two forks, toss the fettuccine in the butter mixture to coat well. Add the salt and pepper.
  4. Divide the pasta between 4 serving plates. Quickly slice the basil into shreds to equal ¼ cup. Sprinkle shredded basil over each serving. Serve hot.
    Stir in sliced grilled chicken, crisp bacon or pancetta, or sliced mushrooms in Step 2 to vary the recipe, creating a more hearty, robust dish.
