Fettuccine Alfredo –

My alfredo sauce is just the very best. It’s past scrumptious and tacky, with a bit of garlic, plenty of gruyere cheese (so melty! so nutty!), and a touch of freshly grated nutmeg. (Simply belief me!) It’s divine.  I don’t truly usually cook dinner fettuccine however I used to be impressed by Kate Winslet’s line in The Vacation, “Shall I make us a bit of Christmas fettuccine?” so I made a decision to make fettuccine alfredo for my Christmas banquet alongside my Loaded Focaccia.

(My pal Irene was delighted to lastly eat my alfredo sauce wanting regular for as soon as!)

I hold complete nutmegs in my pantry. I feel I purchased 5 for $1 three years in the past and so they’re nonetheless going robust. Entire grated nutmeg tastes actually nothing like powdered nutmeg so don’t substitute floor nutmeg. In case you don’t have complete nutmegs, go away it out. I additionally suggest choosing up some complete nutmegs subsequent time you’re on the retailer as a result of it’s so low cost and a bit of freshly grated nutmeg makes so many dishes style great!

Most cheese sauces don’t warmth up nicely the subsequent day and that is no exception. For that purpose and because it makes a ton, I like making this when I’ve 4-6 mates over so we will indulge and eat up your entire pan. Yum!
