  • ounces  uncooked fettuccine
  • cups  chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2  cups  skim milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup  freshly shaved parmesan, asiago, romano cheese blend
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I used 1/4 teaspoon each)
  • Half and half - to thin if necessary


  • Place fettuccine noodles, broth, milk, butter, and garlic into a LARGE straight edged sauté pan.
  • Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a simmer (this will take a few minutes), stirring constantly and separating the noodles with tongs as they start to soften.
  • Once simmering, simmer for about 9 minutes or until pasta is cooked to your preferred texture. Stir regularly to keep the noodles from sticking. You may need to adjust your heat to keep it at a simmer.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cheese and Italian seasoning.
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes to thicken.
  • Thin with half and half, if necessary.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Fettuccine alfredo is best served immediately, but it can be stored and re-heated with success, if necessary! Let the alfredo cool completely before placing it in a sealed airtight container in the fridge.
To re-heat simply place desired amount of alfredo into a bowl with a splash half and half and microwave until warm!
When stored properly, alfredo will last for a week in the fridge.
