Author's Notes

If you don’t plan on eating the entire fettuccine alfredo recipe, I recommend refrigerating leftover sauce before it has been tossed with the noodles. It will keep up to 5 days in an airtight container.

To reheat the sauce, the best method is on the stovetop. Place it in a saucepan (heavy-bottom triple-ply stainless works best) and reheat gently, over low heat, whisking frequently. If the alfredo has been mixed with the noodles, there are several recommended ways, such as heating with steam (using a double-broiler), in the oven, or using a microwave.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Before beginning the alfredo sauce, boil the Gluten-Free Fettuccine (12 oz).
step 2
Place the Butter (1/3 cup), Heavy Cream (1 cup), Cream Cheese (1/3 cup), Garlic (1 clove), Salt (1/4 tsp), Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch), and Ground Nutmeg (1 pinch) in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking until the butter and cream cheese melts.
step 3
Add the Grated Parmesan Cheese (1 1/4 cups) and whisk until smooth. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 3-5 minutes, or until it starts to thicken.
step 4
Pour over the cooked and drained pasta, tossing to combine. Serve immediately.
