Fettucine alfredo is a spiced and creamy alfredo pasta recipe. Made with parsley and parmesan cheese to taste, the fettucine alfredo is spiced with nutmeg and white pepper. Tossed together, it is served warm for satifying and comforting meal.
Ingredients
  Uncooked fettuccine 3⁄4 Pound
  Boiling salted water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Unsalted butter 6 Tablespoon
  Whipping cream 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground white pepper 1 Pinch
  Ground nutmeg 1 Pinch
  Grated parmesan cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Pesto 4 Tablespoon
Directions

Cook fettuccine in large pot of boiling salted water just until al dente, 6 to 8 minutes; drain well.
Return to dry pot.
While fettuccine is cooking, place butter and cream in 10-inch heavy skillet over medium-low heat.
Cook, stirring constantly, until blended and mixture bubbles for 2 minutes.
Stir in salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Remove from heat.
Gradually stir in Parmesan cheese until thoroughly blended and fairly smooth.
Return skillet briefly to heat if necessary to completely blend cheese, but don't let sauce bubble or cheese will become lumpy and tough.
Pour sauce over fettuccine in pot.
Place over low heat.
Stir and toss with 2 forks until sauce is slightly thickened and fettuccine evenly coated, 2 to 3 minutes.
Sprinkle with pesto.
