FEDERICO FELLINI

I had eaten Fettuccini Alfredo many times in the restaurants before, but I clearly remember the first time I tried making it at home was when my daughter was 4 yrs old (now 13) and she had this urge for eating it on a weekday at 8 pm. For a long time, I tried coaxing and convincing her for some other dishes that she was fond of, but in futile, and I obviously wasn’t going to go out to get it for her, so I finally decided to make it at home. I searched up some recipes on Google and although I did not have all the ingredients I finally managed with a make do Spaghetti Alfredo as I made it with the spaghetti pasta, for that’s what I had on hand. I would say I passed the test that day as my daughter polished her bowl up and that’s what mattered to me at that time. Whew!

Well, the saga of Fettucini Alfredo didn’t stop there. This dish became a common request, no wait, I think more of my daughters demand from then on so I decided to work on my recipe and after a few trials, tweaks, testing and tasting my recipe got approved by my husband (believe me it is not easy to please him) and some neighbors.  I have come a long way from then, and Fettuccini Alfredo is not just on our home menu now but also on my cooking class menu. It is one dish that is most popular amongst my classes whether it be for the kids or for adults. Here is what is good about this dish: 

  • This recipe is easy: butter, cream, cheese, and a little bit of patience.
  • Hands down the easiest and tastiest Fettuccini Alfredo you can make
  • So simple to make that even kids can make it. Kids will go crazy for this Alfredo sauce, it’s so delicious that they will never want the jarred one again!
