Fettuccine Alfredo

This lovely lovely recipe is from my friend Jenny who got it from The Pioneer Woman. I made it last night with the tri-color Christmas fettuccine that I got as a present from a friend. It was so good! And so simple to make. Obviously this is not something you should have everyday what with the stick of butter and heavy cream and all, but once in a while this is a perfectly wonderful meal and my whole family loved it. We had it with Caesar salad. Mmmm!

Fettuccine Alfredo

1 lb fettuccine
1 stick of butter
1 cup heavy cream
2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions. In a sauce pan melt the butter in the heavy cream; season with salt and pepper. Put 1 cup of Parmesan into a large serving bowl. Pour hot cream mixture over the top of the Parmesan in the serving bowl. Drain pasta and immediately pour into the bowl. Toss a couple of times, sprinkle with remaining cup of Parmesan. Toss to combine. Season again with salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately. Top individual servings with more Parmesan.
