Fettuccine Alfredo Day

7th of February
-- Learn the Truth!

Many recipes present "Alfredo Sauce" as actual, separate sauce made independent of the pasta. In fact, it's not -- there technically is no such thing as a recipe for Alfredo Sauce. So when you buy the frozen packet at the grocery store, you're being hoodwinked. Luckily this luxiourious pasta dish is one of the easiest pasta meals you can possibly make.

This recipe takes 25 minutes to make. It requires almost no ingredients other than good cheese, pasta and butter (nature's edible gold). The Romans who created this dish didn't use cream so neither should you.

Toss anything you like on top. Try a little freshly grated nutmeg and wilted spinach mixed in. Sounds like an unlikely marriage, but it is delicious.
