Fettuccine AlfredoFettuccine Alfredo: Fettuccine Alfredo is a pasta dish made from fettuccine pasta tossed with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and butter. As the cheese melts, it emulsifies the liquids to form a smooth and rich coating on the pasta. It was named by a Roman restaurateur, Alfredo Di Lelio.
Note: For this dish dry fettuccine noodles are used. If you are using fresh fettuccine noodles, adjust timing accordingly.
