Alfredo with Pasta

Serves 4

  • 6 tbsp Unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp AP flour
  • 1 pint Heavy Cream
  • 2 Garlic cloves (grated)
  • 1/2 tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 4 tbsp Fresh parsley (chopped-keep 1 tbsp for topping)
  • S & P to taste
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 lb Cooked pasta (fettuccine or linguine)
  • Any vegetable, meat, or seafood (cooked)

In a large skillet, melt the butter down on medium heat. Add the garlic and stir for about 30 seconds to cook the raw taste out. Sprinkle in the flour and stir until dissolved. The flour will help to thicken the sauce along with the cooked heavy cream.

Turn the heat to medium high. Add in the heavy cream, nutmeg, 3 tbsp parsley and S & P. Wisk continuously for about 4 – 5 minutes. The sauce should start to thicken and boil. Turn the heat down to low and add the parmesan cheese. Wisk until creamy. Add in the meat, seafood, or veggie just to warm it (about 2 minutes). Add the cooked pasta and begin to toss all ingredients together. Plate and add addition cheese and parsley. Enjoy with garlic bread (highly encouraged!)
