Oh my people - do your hear your arteries clenching? Cream, butter, cheese? Oh my!
This is Marcella's version of the classic 'Roman' sauce: Alfredo. We've all had Alfredo sauce. We've all seen it in small plastic containers in the supermarket. We've all seen ads for that horrible 'Italian' restaurant chain with so-called Alfredo sauce scooped out all over any assortment of pasta, meat, or fish.
You may think that you have tried Alfredo sauce but trust me when I say you won't know what hit you when you try the real deal baby!
This sauce is simple - whipping cream, butter, cheese, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Use the best ingredients you have. Whip it together and I guarantee that you will NEVER look at those wee plastic containers of store bought Alfredo sauce again.
Marcella writes 'if a fat, fresh white truffle should happen to come your way, one of the best uses for it is to shave it over pasta tossed with Alfredo sauce'. Sadly I had no such treat but I can only imagine how wonderful that would be. SIGH
I first made this for our anniversary dinner back in May but have since brought it to the table 4 more times - yes, it is that simple AND good!
You won't go wrong with this one. . . . and who really cares if the bathing suit fits THIS year anyway?
