Fettuccine Alfredo –

My alfredo sauce is solely the most effective. It’s past scrumptious and tacky, with somewhat garlic, plenty of gruyere cheese (so melty! so nutty!), and a touch of freshly grated nutmeg. (Simply belief me!) It’s divine.  I don’t truly usually prepare dinner fettuccine however I used to be impressed by Kate Winslet’s line in The Vacation, “Shall I make us somewhat Christmas fettuccine?” so I made a decision to make fettuccine alfredo for my Christmas feast alongside my Loaded Focaccia.

I maintain entire nutmegs in my pantry. I believe I purchased 5 for $1 three years in the past they usually’re nonetheless going sturdy. Entire grated nutmeg tastes actually nothing like powdered nutmeg so don’t substitute floor nutmeg. Should you don’t have entire nutmegs, depart it out. I additionally suggest choosing up some entire nutmegs subsequent time you’re on the retailer as a result of it’s so low cost and somewhat freshly grated nutmeg makes so many dishes style fantastic!

For that motive and because it makes a ton, I like making this when I’ve 4-6 associates over so we will indulge and eat up all the pan. Yum!
