Fettuccine Alfredo -best ever recipe!

Pasta is such a comfort food. Here is one of our favorite pasta recipes.

Ultimate Pasta Comfort Food
A popular dish that I make occasionally is Fettuccine Alfredo. I've made it for many years using various recipes. A few years ago our paths crossed with Rich and Kristi Heinz! They both shared this recipe, "Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce" in their 2003 Saint John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lanesville, Indiana Cookbook.

A copy of this book was given to me to help replace my loss of several hundred cookbooks during Hurricane Katrina. One of my favorites is their Alfredo sauce! When we are having a no meat meal this is the first choice! My husband is a meat eater so I have added shrimp and chicken with this meal for those who want it!

Alfredo Sauce with Grilled Shrimp and Chicken


Ingredients

1 pint heavy cream (half & half can be used but not milk)
1 stick of butter
2 tablespoon cream cheese
1/2-3/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder or fresh minced garlic
salt & pepper to taste

Directions

In saucepan, combine butter, heavy cream & cream cheese. 
Simmer this until all is melted and mixed well. 
Add the Parmesan cheese and garlic. 
Simmer for about 15-20 min. on low.
Serve with fettuccine noodles

While the sauce is simmering I make my pasta. You can use whatever you like. Cook according to pkg instructions.

If we are having meat I then grill the shrimp and chicken breast strips. I rub McCormick Grill Mates Seafood RUB on both the shrimp and chicken. The seasoning is just right! It has a savory, sweet, spicy blend of garlic, rosemary, lemon peel, chili peppers and cedar smoke flavor gives seafood a bold, flavorful crust that seals in juices. and it seals in the moisture of the meats!

Grill shrimp 3-5 minutes & chicken 6-8 minutes

Final step is to toss the pasta with the sauce. I usually leave a little leftover for dipping with the breadstick or garlic bread. This is a yummy dish. If you have anything to share I would love to hear it. I'm always up to trying new recipes!
