I’ve been dishing on my Sunday Suppers since the beginning of time for Dixie Delights. But, as my littles have grown, started school and have an increasing number of after school commitments, I have similarly grown my repretoire (if you will) of School Night Suppers. One crowd favorite is quick and easy Fettuccine Alfredo. It’s not light and it’s not “healthy”, but sometimes you just need stick-to-your-bones kinda food. Oh, and you can pull this together in about 15 minutes people. While juggling homework for one, the witching hour for another, and a needy puppy. No joke!
serves 4 (in my house)
8 oz fettuccine, uncooked
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg (optional, but I always opt in to nutmeg)
- Cook pasta according to directions, drain.
- Meanwhile, combine butter and cream in a saucepan; cook over low heat until butter melts. Stir in remaining ingredients.
- Pour mixture over pasta (or vice versa); toss well and serve immediately.
Easy peasy and a crowd pleaser!
