When my good friend Deb, of Kahakai Kitchen, shared this recipe for Nigel Slater's "Needs Must" Fettuccine Alfredo I knew straight away I had to make it! I found myself drooling over Deb's pics of creamy and comforting fettuccine noodles. Then I noticed how simple the recipe was. Easiest recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo ever. Five ingredients. Dead Simple.
Nigel Slater's "Needs Must" Fettuccine Alfredo
recipe found on Kahakai Kitchen
and also found in Notes From the Larder
by Nigel Slater
Enough for 2
9 ounces (250g) fettuccine or other favorite pasta shape
1 cup (250ml) heavy cream
thick slice of butter
About 3/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus extra for serving
Salt and lots of black pepper, to taste
Boil the fettuccine (or other pasta shape) in deep heavily salted water till al dente. Put the cream in a saucepan with the butter and warm over gentle heat. Grate in a little nutmeg. Stir in most of the grated Parmesan and a generous amount of black pepper, then toss in the lightly drained pasta. Toss gently and serve with remaining Parmesan.

This looks really simple and quick to make, and rich in flavour! My kids love both creamy and tomato-based pasta and I'm sure they would like this too!
Pasta always works ;-) especially creamy pasta!ReplyDelete
Pasta is one food my kids will always eat and ranks high among the "weeknight favourites".ReplyDelete
Yum! Keeping it simple really is best!ReplyDelete
I'm always suckered in when it comes to pasta dishes that have decadent creamy sauces. Oh well. Everyone had a weakness!ReplyDelete
Not sure how I've stayed away from this one for so long. Great choice for the theme, Kim.
Hmmm maybe I'll diagnose the.boy as underweight and make this? Seems like a good idea.ReplyDelete
Glad you liked this one too. It was so very simple and so very good, wasn't it?!ReplyDelete
P.S. Love your pasta dish. ;-)
Love just how simple this dish is - I've been fantasising about it ever since Deb made it a couple of weeks back. Love that you really took one for the team for the sake of your daughter's health - top parenting, right there :-)ReplyDelete
