How to Boil Water: Fettuccine Alfredo

Let's just keep this short and sweet. I'm not feeling well. No one in our household is feeling well. Stella puked on the floor twice. Rob can't breathe out his nose and can't stop sneezing and my throat and head are killing me. We are a very sad, pathetic household.

But YET we made dinner tonight. Okay, well I made dinner tonight - Rob did watch the food while I ran to the bathroom at one point and had to deal with a timer going off so he definitely helped. Stella just slept on the couch. Anyway, we cooked. We had a healthy-ish meal this evening, so here it is....

Ingredients:
8 ounces dried fettuccine
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Grated or finely shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)

Directions:
Cook fettuccine according to package directions.

Meanwhile, for sauce, in a 3-quart saucepan melt butter. Add cream, salt, and pepper to saucepan.

Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat; stir in the 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Drain fettuccine; add to hot sauce. Toss to coat.

If desired, sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese.



So since we are feeling well, I won't add much. But I will say that I still prefer red sauce, but otherwise...
