Tasty Tuesday: Fettucini Alfredo

Everyone needs a couple of nice Company Meals. You know the type…the meal that impresses your mother-in-law or the meal that you make for your husband’s boss. Fettucini Alfredo is a classic Company Meal, and isn’t terribly tricky to make.

As you gather things together, you’ll need:

  • 1 package of wide egg noodles, cooked and drained
  • 4 – 6 chicken breasts, baked (breading optional)

The friend who shared her sauce recipe with me swears that it’s even tastier than the Alfredo sauce at Olive Garden. I don’t recall ever eating Alfredo sauce at Olive Garden, so I have no idea how it compares. My friend’s recipe, however, I can vouch for! It’s delicious.

Alfredo Sauce

  • 1 pint Cream (if you want ultra-rich, go with heavy cream; if you want medium rich, use half-and-half; if you want make this dish “lighter” use milk)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 3/4 c. Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 T. minced garlic
  • a little salt to taste depending how salty your parmesan is

In a saucepan combine butter, cream, garlic and cream cheese.  Simmer this until all is melted and mixed well.  Add the Parmesan cheese and simmer for 15-20 minutes on low.  Add salt if you need it.
Layer the noodles on a plate, top with a chicken breast and generous amounts of sauce. A green salad goes nicely with this meal, as does French bread.
This sauce keeps and freezes very well. It serves 4-5 people and can be doubled for a larger crowd.
