It is the simple things in life that matter.
This is most certainly true when it comes to Alfredo. I am not fooled by those jars in the grocery store that pretend to be Alfredo and are white and gooey and plop out of the jar with a sickening Gak sound. I make my Alfredo as simply as possible with just a handful of ingredients:
- 1 and 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup butter
- pinch of nutmeg
- 1/2 freshly grated parmesan
- salt and pepper
Bring the first 3 ingredients to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and let thicken a few minutes. Add salt and pepper. Toss with pasta and parmesan.
I like to add in a few vegetables and chicken sometimes. To pair with the Vidal wine I added asparagus and toasted pine nuts. A satisfying Friday night meal after a full week.
