  • 1 lb fettuccine noodles
  • 1 stick butter (or margarine)
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 – 1 ½ cups parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic
  • parsley


Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 30mins


Step 1

Cook fettuccine noodles. Do not rinse. They hold the sauce better if not rinsed. Drain and set aside.

In same large pot that noodles were cooked, melt butter and add evaporated milk. Keep on low – medium low heat. Stir in parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, garlic and parsley.

Add noodles and heat until sauce thickens to desired consistency.

1. Add milk to thin. If it sits on the stove too long, the sauce is absorbed and the alfredo will be better if you stir in some milk just before serving.
2. Freshly grated parmesan will make a thinner sauce than canned grated parmesan cheese.
3. Just add chicken to make Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. Left over grilled chicken is perfect.
4. Original recipe calls for whipping cream. Evaporated milk makes a lighter, healthier version.
5. Mushrooms (fresh/sautéed or canned) are great additions. Just stir them in.
