Sage Infused Fettuccini Alfredo
Here is my original recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo:
½ of a (1-pound) package Fettuccine, uncooked
1/3 cup softened butter
¾ cup whipping cream, room temperature (I use fat-free half and half)
¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
Dash ground nutmeg
Coarse ground pepper
2 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Cook Fettuccine according to package directions Drain well and place in warm serving dish large enough for tossing.
In pan, add butter and garlic, heavy whipping cream, grated cheese, salt, nutmeg, pepper
In Dutch oven, prepare Fettuccine according to package directions; drain. Remove pan from heat. In same pan, combine hot fettuccine and butter; toss to coat. Add one-half the cream; toss well. Add one-half the Parmesan cheese; toss well. Add remaining cream; toss well to coat. Add remaining Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg; toss well until coated and creamy. Arrange in warm serving dish. Serve immediately with pepper and Parmesan cheese. Refrigerate leftovers. 4 servings.
Fettuccine Alfredo replaced our traditional Ham for Easter dinner this year to the delight of our son-in-law, Josh. My heart was warmed as I heard him tell his children how I made it for a special Valentine’s Day dinner when he and their mom were dating.

I love Fetuccine Alfredo! I have sage growing in my yard, so I'll try the Sage Infused recipe; it sounds really good.
Wonderful family pictures!

What a beautiful family you have! I see dating worked out well for Josh and Jamie. Ha! My ex-mother-in-law taught me how to make fettucine which is similar to the recipe you just tried. I use light cooking cream or mascarpone with a little skim milk, butter or olive oil, garlic powder, parmesan cheese and dried parsley. Sometimes I add cayenne for a little kick. My oldest son loves the stuff! Since I don't eat meat, I just serve it up with a big portion of steamed broccoli. Yum! Have a great day. Tammy

Both recipes sound yummy. I think I'd try your suggestion and use broccoli or asparagus. Thanks for sharing, will pin this to try, Laura
That recipe looks wonderful and your family photo is beautiful!
I was glad to hear the non fat half and half worked in this recipe. My husband had this last night in a restaurant and we talked about the peas that were in it; I probably would choose broccoli. I love it with chicken. Thanks for this recipe. And such a nice picture of your family around the table enjoying it!
That looks delicious…I must try this recipe! (Is the lighter version as good as the other?)
Sweet memory of your son-in-law…no wonder that melted your heart. 🙂

I haven't had Alfredo in years, love this lightened up version:@)
I love this sort of recipe and have already hit 'print'. The peas just say 'springtime' when they're added to it.

Was perusing Pinterest I saw this pin, had to hop on over! Looks luscious, I love the addition of peas, and the chicken too. I'm not a butter lover, but I may have to try this dish for company. xo
