One Pan Fettuccine Alfredo

One Pan Fettuccine AlfredoReady to start your Monday off with a yummy pasta recipe? I have been obsessed with the No. 2 Pencil Food blog lately, recreating all her amazing recipes! I am loving having all this energy to cook in the kitchen lately, not sure how long it will last, but Charles is enjoying every tasty minute!

Last week I sent a text message – Mexican or Italian? – asking my husband which he preferred for dinner. His response was Italian so I went off in search of something tasty & delicious {and easy to make} and this is what I stumbled upon!

I love recipes that combine all ingredients into one pot or pan – it makes everything so easy to make and even easier to clean up. Plus, what’s not to love about a quick and simple pasta recipe that can be ready in less than 30 minutes? I also enjoy the fact that this recipe only uses a few simple ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your pantry.

Fettuccine and Garlic Bread

Seriously, this dish was so tasty & delicious. I even used less cheese than I initially planned on using because it was so creamy already coming out of the pan. The pasta was so full of flavor and served with a few slices of garlic bread – it totally hit the spot!

    With reference of your article I have the pleasure to tell you the history of my grandfather Alfredo Di Lelio, who is the creator of “fettuccine all’Alfredo” in 1908 in restaurant run by his mother Angelina in Rome, Piazza Rosa (Piazza disappeared in 1910 following the construction of the Galleria Colonna / Sordi).
    Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant “Alfredo” in 1914 in Rome, after leaving the restaurant of his mother Angelina.
    In 1943, during the war, Di Lelio sold the restaurant to others outside his family.
    In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio decided to reopen with his son Armando his restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30 “Il Vero Alfredo” (“Alfredo di Roma”), whose fame in the world has been strengthened by his nephew Alfredo and that now managed by his nephew Ines, with the famous “gold cutlery” (fork and spoon gold) donated in 1927 by two well-known American actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks (in gratitude for the hospitality).
    See also the site of “Il Vero Alfredo”, which also contains information on franchising.
    I must clarify that other restaurants “Alfredo” in Rome do not belong to the family tradition of “Il Vero Alfredo” in Rome.
    I inform you that the restaurant “Il Vero Alfredo” is in the registry of “Historic Shops of Excellence” of the City of Rome Capitale.
    Best regards Ines Di Lelio
