Fettuccine Alfredo

  • Serves

    serves 4-6


This extra-rich version of fettuccine Alfredo is impossible to resist. Boiling the pasta until it's just al dente allows it to soak up plenty of the creamy sauce.


  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 lb. dried fettuccine
  • 1 12 cups finely grated parmesan, plus more for serving
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Finely chopped parsley, for serving


Step 1

Bring cream to a boil in a 14" high-sided skillet over medium-high heat; reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, about 30 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain and immediately add to saucepan of reduced cream; add cheese, butter, and salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Garnish with additional cheese and parsley, if desired.
