fettuccine alfredo

today is national fettuccine alfredo day, so in honor of it, I am going to share my fettuccine alfredo recipe with you:

24 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 ounces cream cheese
salt and pepper to taste (white pepper if you have it)
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

  1. bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. add fettuccine and cook as directed on the package;  drain.
  2. put the butter back into the pot you cooked the fettuccine in and melt over medium heat.  add the fettuccine back to the pot.
  3. reduce the heat to low, add the cream and cream cheese, stirring until the cream cheese is all melted and incorporated.
  4. stir in the remaining ingredients and serve with additional parmesan cheese.
