Fettucine Alfredo

I’d never made an alfredo sauce before – I think the only recipes I’d ever seen had raw eggs in them (or maybe that was the carbonara sauce). But this was so quick and easy and yummy !


Fettuccine Alfredo

 ¾ lb./ 350g fettuccine                                   

3 TB butter

1 cup cream

Pinch grated nutmeg

1/8 tsp fresh-ground blackpepper                                   

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

6 slices bacon


In large pot of boiling, salted  water, cook fettuccine until just done, about 12 minutes..


Meanwhile, fry the bacon in one pan and heat the butter and cream in another.  Add the nutmeg and pepper.


Drain the fettuccine. Toss with the cream sauce, bacon and Parmesan.  Serve immediately with extra Parmesan cheese.

Serves 4
