What is Fettuccine Alfredo?

Fettuccine Alfredo originated in Rome, Italy in 1914 by Alfredo Di Lelio. Fettuccine is a longer thicker pasta, while alfredo sauce is a sauce that consists of cream, butter, and parmesan cheese. Both fettuccine and alfredo go hand in hand! The thick, long pasta, gets coated in the creamy, buttery, and cheesy sauce.

Why we love this recipe

This fettuccine alfredo is no where near the classic way of making a fettuccine. It’s a simple version that doesn’t require using a store bought alfredo sauce.

How to make a One Pot Fettuccine Alfredo?

Of course, we have to make fettuccine alfredo as a one pot wonder, and we are so excited for you all to try it, it’s fabulous! If you love the One Pot Pasta Primavera, then try this recipe!

  1. In a large pot on medium high heat, add olive oil and garlic. Sautè for 1 minute or until garlic is fragrant. Add broth, salt and pepper.
  2. Add pasta and bring to a boil. Make sure the pasta is completely submerged in the broth. Stir. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low.
  3. Cook for 12-14 minutes. Be sure to stir a couple times to make sure the pasta does not stick (this is key!)
  4. Once the pasta has cooked (do not drain), add the heavy cream, parmesan cheese and stir. Garnish with extra parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.

The benefit of one pot pasta dishes

We’ve said it before and we will say it again, this is a fast clean up recipe! Depending on your priorities, cooking a meal in a single dish (meaning all you have to clean is one dish – score!) might be the biggest benefit of this creamy recipe. But what we love most about making single pot meals is the added flavor that cooks into your meal.

Modifications and Notes

Pasta. If you aren’t a fan of this thick pasta, you can definitely use a thinner pasta such as linguine or spaghetti, short pasta works too. All these options work wonderfully.

Cheese. We use a freshly grated parmesan cheese (Parmigiano Reggiano). Feel free to use asiago or romano, or a blend of all three!

Dairy-free. For a dairy-free option, use your favorite dairy free cream, such as coconut cream and cheese.

What goes well with fettuccine Alfredo

Protein. If you’d like to add a protein, a side of chicken breast of strips of grilled chicken on top would be perfect. Otherwise, shrimp works great too. Try our Pesto Baked Chicken.

Vegetables: For a vegetable option, add broccoli or asparagus. Once the pasta and broth come to a boil, add vegetables and continue to cook according to the recipe instructions.

    I made this for my son’s 16th birthday in December and it was great! He loved it and usually requests alfredo pasta with a side of homemade meatballs for his birthday. Also used the base of this recipe to make a mac & cheese on christmas day and it was the favorite side dish to texas style brisket. I am goin to make it again tonight!!
