Authentic Fettuccine Alfredo
|Broad noodles||1⁄2 Pound|
|Boiling salted water||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Soft sweet butter||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Grated parmesan cheese||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|

This recipe offers probably the simplest and most excellent method for preparing pasta.
The trick is to plan a suitable menu (perhaps with a big salad bowl of crisp vegetables and finely diced cooked ham or bacon bits), to have everything ready at the table and everyone waiting to sit down, and to serve without a moment's delay so that all can enjoy this fresh main dish piping hot.
