Original Italian Alfredo Sauce is an easy recipe to make on a busy day. This recipe only takes about 20 minutes, especially if you use the fresh fettuccine from the refrigerator section of your supermarket.



  1. Saute the shallots or garlic in the melted butter until soft and opaque.
  2. Add the fresh lemon juice and [white wine if using] and let cook for a minute or two.
  3. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and gently stir to blend the flavors with the pasta.
  4. If you need more sauce, add some of the hot pasta water. Season with salt and pepper and add the chopped parsley or basil.
  5. Add some grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.


When draining the pasta, save some of the pasta water. You can use this to add to the pasta if you prefer ‘juice’ in your pasta.
