The Ultimate Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

Original Recipe:

  •     18 oz. fresh fettucine, cooked, drained and piping hot
  •     Aproximately 3/4 cup pasta water
  •     1/2 lb (2 sticks) butter, cut in small cubes
  •     3 1/4 cups grated Parmesan Cheese (Roughly 1/2 lb.)

  1. Bring 6 quarts salted water to a rolling boil. Add pasta and cook until it is just al dente. (for fresh pasta this takes approximately 2 minutes. For dried pasta it will take approximately 8 minutes.)
  2. Drain pasta, reserving about a cup of the pasta water.
  3. Bring 3/4 cup pasta water and butter to a boil in a large skillet. Add pasta and sprinkle with cheese. Toss until a rich creamy sauce is formed, adding more water as necessary. (about 2 minutes)
