This week for Thirty Minute Thursdays, cooking our way through Giuliano Hazan's Thirty Minute Pasta book with Glennis and Margaret and whoever else wants to join us, I made Fettuccine alla Romana (Fettuccine Alfredo), on page 44.
The ingredient list: cream, butter, nutmeg, salt, pepper, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and dried fettuccine.
I made a fourth of this recipe and it was plenty for two of us with some left over. I have tried many many Alfredo recipes over the years and finally found one about ten years ago that we loved and have stuck with it ever since. While this doesn't look like much of a post, I have to say, that this recipe is very very close to the one I have been making these past ten years so it was really nice to find it in this book as well.
This is just a simple, easy, and quick recipe to throw together for a side dish of a week night...that and a little of it goes a long way as it is rich in texture and taste. Definitely a wonderful recipe.
If you like the looks and sounds of it, buy the book as I am a believer in encouraging people to support the authors who put together these fabulous books by buying a copy, so you won't find the recipes posted from this book here. (Buy it, the recipes are easy, the ingredients are easy to locate, it's not pricey, and there are photos of almost all the recipes.)
