How To Make Fettuccine Alfredo
You Will Need
  • 1 8-ounce block of parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 12-ounce box of fettuccine noodles
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 c. Light cream
  • A dash white pepper
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 c. Partially thawed peas (optional)
  • A cheese grater
  • 2 small bowls
  • A large pot
  • A medium saucepan
  • A colander
step 1Grate the cheese
Grate the parmesan cheese into a bowl.
spacer tip Use freshly grated parmesan cheese.
step 2Heat the water
Fill a large pot about two-thirds full of water. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and put on high heat.
step 3Prepare the sauce
Prepare the sauce while the water heats. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add the cream, the remaining half-teaspoon salt, and the pepper. Heat and stir until steam rises, but do not boil.
step 4Add the egg yolk
Separate an egg yolk into a small bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of the hot cream mixture and stir with a fork. Whisk the yolk into the sauce and heat thoroughly.
spacer tip Mixing a small amount of hot cream into the egg yolk prevents the egg from scrambling.
step 5Cook the pasta
When the water is at a rolling boil, add the fettuccine, stir, and cook until al dente. Drain the pasta and quickly return it to the pot.
step 6Add the sauce, cheese.
Add the hot cream sauce and half the grated cheese to the pasta and stir vigorously. The hot pasta and sauce will melt the cheese. Once the first half of the cheese is melted, fold in the rest of the cheese.
spacer tip optionally: fold in the peas
