    I know there is enough fat in this to kill a horse but does anyone have the recipe Alfredos uses. My daughter thought it was wonderful.

    Fettucini Alfredo
    Recipe from "Alfredo's" in Rome Originator of Fettucini Alfredo


    Fettucini Noodles-

    3 Cups Unbleached All-purpose Flour
    3 Eggs
    1 Tsp salt
    2 - 4 Tbsp Heavy Cream

    Fit food processor with steel blades. Add flour to food processor, then salt. Add whole eggs. Place lid on bin and pulse 4 times. Slowly add the cream through the feed tube, and process until the mix has formed a ball. Remove ball and check consistency. Flour may be added if needed. [Scraps from the bin may be added at this time, but are not necessary] Place ball on floured surface and knead with heal of hand for a few minutes. Shape into ball and place in a floured, covered bowl in refrigerator for one half hour. Roll into the shape of a cigar with a thyroid condition. [French bread shaped] Cut into fourths. Cover three with a towel while working with fourth. Roll out dough with pasta maker. Roll through starting on the thickest setting and working to thinnest, using each setting about 3 or 4 times. Pasta may be cut in half to make it easier to work with. Cut ribbon type noodles from dough. Spread out on a floured surface to dry for a half hour or so. [These are best when used fresh, but they can be frozen if needed in plastic bags]

    Sauce-

    1/4 lb butter
    1 cup fresh parmesan
    1 cup Heavy Cream

    Place noodles into about 5 quarts boiling water with 1 tsp salt. Noodles will cook in just a minute or so, DO NOT OVERCOOK!! Melt butter in a saute pan over medium flame. Drain pasta with a pasta rake [colander may be used] and place into butter. [The noodles do not need to be absolutely dry, some water is okay] Toss pasta to coat with butter. Add cream and bring almost to a boil. Make sure all noodles are coated. DO NOT add too much cream [avoid a cream soup sauce]. Add in parmesan cheese and toss. [More cream may be added if it becomes too dry] Place on plates and sprinkle with a bit of freshly ground black pepper and some parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
