what is fettuccine alfredo-

The traditional Italian version of Fettuccine Alfredo originates from Rome. The fettuccine is served with butter, Parmesan and black pepper. Though the classic version is wonderful, adding cream and garlic to the sauce makes the recipe even better. The sauce is rich, creamy and adds so much flavor to the pasta.

Chicken breast is seasoned and cooked until it’s crispy on the outside while juicy and tender on the inside. The mushrooms are sauteed. The chicken and mushrooms are added to the creamy homemade Alfredo sauce along with the fettuccine pasta and combined.

This recipe is a comfort food at its finest and you’ll never want to order Alfredo at a restaurant again once you see how easy this is to make.

FUNNY STORY- So, I sent my husband to go get the pasta for the video we were making for this recipe. We cooked the pasta and were at the point when you add the pasta to the Alfredo. I go to twirl my pasta for the video and it completely kept breaking apart. It was usual brand we purchase and for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out what I did wrong.

After we shoot the video and sit to eat, I reach for the box and here he got gluten free pasta. It was still AMAZING, but no twirl. Actually way better than regular pasta. So there, ha! ;)..
