Best Ever Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe: I’m Lovin’ It


Rich and creamy Fettuccine Alfredo is a classic crowd-pleaser.

There are a few things I *always* have in my food arsenal;  pasta, butter, cheese, cream and chocolate…….I left that last one out today – shocking, I know!

Sometimes I just crave creamy, buttery, fatty goodness.  When that craving hits me, nothing satisfies like a big ‘ole plate full of Fettuccine Alfredo!   It’s so simple to make, it’s almost scary – as in, it’s scary what my hips would look like if I made it all the time!

Several weeks ago Allison’s best friend made a big batch of Fettuccine Alfredo at our house and holy cow! I think it was the best I’ve ever had!  If you’d like to add a protein to your meal toss in some seasoned grilled chicken, bacon or shrimp for delicious alternative!

You want this recipe in your arsenal – it’s great for crowds or can be thrown together quickly on any given night for dinner, and it’s a dish everyone in the house likes!

    I’m sure this is a super silly question but do you use dried parsley or fresh parsley? I’ve seen other recipes that use fresh parsley but from what I can see in your picture it looks like dried so I wasn’t sure. Thanks!
