Fettuccine Alfredo, or as it’s known in Italy, Fettuccine al Burro (fettuccini with butter) is a funny thing, easily one of the most known pasta dishes in North America. The version we have come to know is a far cry from the original. In fact, the idea of using heavy cream and flour to make a pasta sauce would have most proper Italian cooks spitting out their espresso! The original dish was made by simply tossing cooked noodles with butter and parmesan cheese until the cheese melts with the butter and starchy pasta water into a wonderfully creamy and light sauce. A simple side dish highlighting simple ingredients, Italian cooking at its core.
