My Alfredo!

I almost for got that I said I would publish this yummy stuff!

Julie’s Classic Alfredo!
12 oz dry fettuccine noodles or Trader Joe's dry tortellini
6 Tbs butter
2/3 cup whipping cream
½ tsp salt/ sea or kosher
Generous dash white pepper
Generous dash of nutmeg (don't think about not using it makes it!)
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
garnish with
1 cup fresh tomatoes diced
2 tbs chopped fresh parsley 


1.   Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well and return to pan.

2.   Place butter and cream in large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until butter melts and mixture bubbles. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in salt, pepper and nutmeg. Remove from heat. Gradually stir in cheese until well blended and smooth. Return briefly to heat to completely blend cheese if necessary. (Do not let sauce bubble or cheese will become lumpy and tough.)
  1. Pour sauce over pasta. Toss with 2 forks over low heat 2 to 3 minutes until sauce is thickened and pasta is evenly coated. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and fresh tomatoes.     
Love Ya Julie!!
