This classic Italian dish features tender fettuccine pasta tossed in a rich and velvety Alfredo sauce. With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a comforting and indulgent meal that’s perfect for any occasion.


8 oz fettuccine pasta
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the fettuccine according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

2. In a large skillet or saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the heavy cream and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture begins to simmer.

3. Reduce the heat to low and gradually whisk in the 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt. Whisk continuously until the cheese is fully melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy.

4. Add the cooked fettuccine to the Alfredo sauce and toss to coat the pasta evenly. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the pasta is heated through and the sauce has thickened slightly.

5. Serve the Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo immediately, garnished with additional grated Parmesan cheese if desired.

Optional Variations:

  • For a richer sauce, use 3/4 cup heavy cream and 1/4 cup unsalted butter.
  • Stir in 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice or white wine for a brightness.
  • Add grilled or sautéed mushrooms for a filling dish.
  • Sprinkle the finished dish with chopped fresh parsley or chives for a pop of color and flavor.

Enjoy this decadent and easy-to-make Fettuccine Alfredo! The creamy, cheesy sauce perfectly coats the tender pasta for a truly indulgent and satisfying dish.
