I found this recipe via Pinterest.  (I am totally addicted to Pinterest, but that is a whole other issue!)  The recipe is from Russell Bellanca, the chef at Alfredo of Rome in New York City.  It is said to be Martha Stewart’s favorite Fettuccine Alfredo recipe.  Well, we can certainly see why.  It is AMAZING!  It was the best Fettuccine Alfredo that we have ever eaten.  Seriously!!

The best part about the recipe is that there are only 3 ingredients!  My version actually had four ingredients; I added some garlic powder for extra flavor.  We served the pasta with the Grilled Italian Chicken Tenders from yesterday.  Next time we are going to serve it with our favorite Blackened Chicken – I can not wait!!

This is obviously not something to eat all the time, but it is the perfect special occasion dish.  We both felt it is worth every single calorie!

  1. Hey. I made this for the first time tonight and while delicious I found this salty and I didn't even add the salt. Did you use unsalted butter or salted? I think next time I may use one stick unsalted one stick salted and not add in extra salt.

  2. I LOVE you!!! I have made the cheddar bacon pulls, taco cupcakes, and now this alfredo… my husband is in love with you too! Crack potatoes are on for tomorrow with some ribs. Thanks for sharing your secrets, you're makin' me look awesome!

  3. Pinterest is the reason I was lucky enough to come upon your blog………..THANKS PINTEREST!! Yes I'm newly addicted also.
    Alfredo without the cream this is a definite try recipe. Off to search for a chicken picatta type recipe.

  4. Alfredo sauce is easy to make. But it is tricky to to do it very well!

    Yours looks like it has the perfect consistency. Nice job, Steph.

  5. I am going to dream about this! Isn't it amazing how the simplest combinations of ingredients can taste so fantastic? I will be trying this one.

  6. I made that italian chicken last night with slim cutlets for sandwiches. It was delicious! I've got three leftover and cannot wait to chop them up in this recipe tomorrow!!! Your recipes are fantastic & easy.

  7. I love alfredo, but like you said I eat it sparingly. It looks delicious, especially topped with the the chicken.
