Cheesy Fettuccine Alfredo

panlasangpinoy's picture
Fettuccine Alfredo is a pasta dish similar to that of pasta alla carbonara and traditionally made from fettuccine pasta, tossed with parmesan cheese, and butter. Since its debut in the US, several variations were made that almost deviated from the original recipe. Eggs, flour, olive oil, and asiago cheese were sometimes added for a twist in flavor and a much richer texture.
  Fettuccine 1 Pound (Cooked According To Package Instructions)
  Milk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Heavy whipping cream 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Parmesan cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), shredded
  Romano cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), shredded
  Egg yolks 6
  Fried bacon 4 , crumbled
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

2. Heat a saucepan or cooking pot and pour-in the milk then bring to a boil
3. Add the heavy whipping cream and stir then let boil.
4. Adjust the heat to the lowest possible then add the Parmesan and Romano cheeses. Stir continuously until cheese melts and the texture of the mixture becomes fine.
