Super-fast version of Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettuccine Alfredo is one of those foods that we just have to eat, even though we know it’s loaded with fat! Sometimes you’ve just got to say So what? and go for it. This is a very fast and easy version of the Italian treat, and must be served immediately, so make sure that everything else is very simple. It goes well with a tasty fish like salmon if you wish, although it can also be a fine main dish on it’s own. Oh, but a green salad is a necessity.

Super Fast Fettuccine Alfredo

1 lb fettuccine

2T butter, melted
2/3 c heavy cream
Salt & pepper to taste
3/4 c parmesan cheese, grated
Parsley or basil for garnish

Boil up water in a large pot and cook the pasta for about 12 minutes to al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving a bit of the water. In a serving bowl, toss the pasta with the melted butter, and then add the cream, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with the cheese and turn to coat. Garnish and serve!
