I’m calling today Pasta Friday! We all love pasta! It’s easy, filling and can be great comfort food. I have never made Fettuccine Alfredo before and now after making this, I can’t believe I haven’t done it sooner. It’s sooooo easy! I will warn you, this is not a recipe for someone on a diet — it’s filled with butter, cream and cheese! But it’s a great compliment to any kind of meat or fish and it’s delicious!
Add a little extra pepper and garnish for taste and you have an easy Fettuccine Alfredo dish! Serve with garlic bread and a veggie and you have a complete meal. Or add chicken or fish and it makes a great side dish!

Recipe NotesI am amazed at how easy this recipe is. I first watched it on the Pioneer Woman's TV show. It's a great way to spice up pasta night!
