    Fettuccine Alfredo

    This is absolutely the best Fettuccine Alfredo recipe! So easy too! The basil and nutmeg is what sets it apart from other Alfredos. It closely resembles Olive Garden's Alfredo if you add some blackened chicken strips! We also like it sometimes without the nutmeg. It is rich!


    8 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
    3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/2 cup margarine
    1/2 cup milk
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon dried basil
    1 pinch ground nutmeg


    Directions:


    1) Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.


    2) In a medium saucepan, combine cream cheese, Parmesan, margarine, milk, garlic powder and basil and stir over low heat until smooth and creamy, 10 to 15 minutes. Toss sauce with pasta and sprinkle with nutmeg.

    (Serves 4).

    I think it needs some bacon just to round out the fat content. It sounds like a great dish, nutmeg makes anything taste great. I will give it try, sans bacon.

    I make a bean and spinach soup and everybody asks what the secret ingredient is. Well, it's nutmeg! Yummmm!

    Thanks for sharing! Sounds yummy!!! I'd have to substitute (healthier) butter for the margarine, though.

    JFYI, the creator of this recipe had tried dozens of times to perfect the recipe! I believe she's got it! I love the nutmeg too as someone else suggested and I believe it's the key to putting the zing in this Alfredo dish! Also, I've used other pastas too so consider using shells, spaghetti, rotini or penne and rigatoni! They are all wonderful in this dish! Thanks everyone!

    You can post it on this thread! They will probably move it back to Recipes anyway. TFSYR!

    I made this again last night and realized I needed to tell you about the recipe calling for 1 tsp. of garlic which is alot! You should alter this to your taste. I think for 4 servings that the ratio is off, unless you are a gungho garlic lover! I think it should be about 1/4 tsp., the same measurement as the basil. I upped the garlic from the 1st time I made it and I only used about 1/4 tsp. and still I thought it was too heavy tasting of garlic.

    I never go by the measurement of the spices in recipes. I always eliminate the salt in every recipe. So just be careful on using a full tsp. of garlic! It might ruin the dish! lol.

    Rosebird has the best idea! Add the shrimp, chicken or scallops!
