It has taken me some time to find the perfect alfredo recipe, and I’ve suffered through a lot of boring, bland bowls of pasta to get here.  It was a painful process to endure, but hey, someone had to do it. I finally found a recipe in Kraft Food & Family magazine a few years back, and with a few modifications  it has been my go-to sauce ever since.

This pasta dish tastes like it came from a fancy Italian restaurant, but only takes a few minutes to prepare and tastes just as good! The sauce is made with butter and cream, which in my opinion is a delicious way to start any meal! The diet starts next week, right? 
A handful of Parmesan cheese melted into the sauce with just a touch of nutmeg added makes this the creamiest, cheesiest, most comforting pasta sauce in the world! I seriously could go on forever about how much I love this recipe, but instead I’ll just let you try it yourself and find out : )

This alfredo sauce is amazing with regular fettuccine noodles, but I like to switch things up once in awhile and substitute spinach or whole wheat noodles. I feel a little better eating all that delicious butter and cream sauce when there’s some healthy greens hidden in the noodles! All in moderation, right?
