My Fettucine Alfredo Recipe

½ cup (1 stick) butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, minced
2 cups heavy cream
4 oz cream cheese
1 cup Parmigiana-Reggiano, finely grated
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
Chopped parsley for garnish

The sauce takes about 10-15 minutes to make.  Start cooking your fettuccine pasta to be done as the sauce is done.

Melt the butter in a large skillet.  Add the garlic and shallots and saute until tender.  Add the cream cheese and allow to melt.  Add the heavy cream, grated cheese, salt and pepper.  Bring to a low simmer and cook until thickened (about 8 minutes).

Once the pasta is done cooking, drain and add to the skillet and toss to combine.

Top with the chopped parsley.
