  • You need some garlic in there and I don't know about creme cheese.. I always used heavy cream, butter, cheese, a liitle flour, pepper ,garlic, a little nutmeg..

  • It makes enough for chicken alfredo for my family of 7. I don't add garlic, either, because I add it to the chicken when the chicken is cooking. This is an easy and tasty recipe.

  • The jarred stuff is disgusting

    Fettuccine Alfredo

    1 cup (250 ml) heavy cream
    4 Tbs (60 ml) butter
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    1 lb (500 g) fettuccine cooked according to package directions
    3/4 cup (180 ml) freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    Bring the cream and butter to a boil in a saucepan large enough to hold the cooked fettuccine. Reduce the flame to low and add the salt, and pepper. Add the cooked fettuccine and toss in the sauce. Add the Parmesan cheese and toss until the fettuccine are well coated and the sauce has thickened. Serves 4 to 6.

    I throw in vegetables (broccoli, mushrooms, cauliflower, etc.), that have been sauteed in olive oil and garlic.
