Tuesday With Tierra! (Pasta Alfredo)

Welcome back to the second recipe by Tuesday with Tierra. Now this particular recipe is one of my favorites! I absolutely love Alfredo! The only downfall is how much butter and cream there is so unfortunately I cannot have this every day like I would like but it is fantastic!

This recipe stemmed from my sister-in-law and then my mother-in-law and now I have revised it to make it mine :D

Pasta Alfredo

You will need:

16 oz pasta
3/4 cup butter
1 cup cream
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tsp parsley
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup diced onion

1: In a medium sauce pan bring water to a boil and add in the 16 oz pasta, boil till tender.
2: While the pasta is boiling saute onion till tender, in the butter on a large frying pan.
3: Add in garlic to the frying pan when the onions are almost tender and do not let the garlic get to brown.
4: When the butter is melted and bowling add in the cream and bring to boil. Once it is brought to a boil, boil for about 5 minutes and the sauce should thicken.
5: Drain the pasta and add to the pan with the sauce.
6: Mix in parsley, parm cheese, and pepper. Mix well!

Serve on plates and Enjoy!

A nice addition to the pasta is Chicken. Take 1 chicken breast and add to a crock pot with 1 cup water. Season with 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp thyme. Cook on high for 2-3 hours or until able to pull apart. Then mix in with the pasta and sauce.
