- What is Fettuccine Alfredo?
Fettuccine Alfredo is a delicious pasta dish made with a flat ribbon-cut noodle tossed with butter, cream, and melted Parmesan cheese. The Fettuccine noodles are wide and are best suited for the thick cream sauces. As the cheese melts, it emulsifies the liquids to form a smooth and rich coating on the pasta.
How did Fettuccine Alfredo get its name?
A chef named Alfredo di Lelio served the first plate of Fettuccine Alfredo in 1914. His wife had just given birth to their first son and hadn’t regained her appetite. He invented the dish to entice her into eating again, and it worked. Soon after he began serving it at his restaurant in Rome.
Fettuccine Alfredo is delicious on its own. In the United States Fettuccine Alfredo is sometimes mixed with other ingredients such as broccoli, parsley, cream, garlic, shrimp, or chicken, or all of these.
