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. Did you use Kraft shaker cheese or did you grate the cheese yourself? My daughters LOVE fettuccine alfredo, and this sounds so easy!

  2. I saw this recipe when I watched "Martha Stewart's Cooking School" show last night on PBS and I can't wait to try it. Thanks to Steph (love your site) and all of you who wrote reviews to let me know it's as good as it looked on the show … LOVE, love, love simple!

  3. Carrie – you can use the bag of grated parmesan cheese. I also like to buy the tubs of by DiGiorno or the Publix brand. Enjoy!

  4. Looks awesome! I just found your site this week and I will be making lots of recipes from it! I love to try new things but most recipes are too fancy for us– we are very much meat & potatoes kind of people (and originally from Alabama! Roll Tide!) so these are perfect for us. One question on this one; sorry if it's a stupid question. Do you use can parmesan, bag parmesan, or do you actually buy a block of parmesan and grate it fresh? Thanks!
