Fettuccine Alfredo

tmp_2444-IMG_20150725_162036855180056Oh my goodness!

We’ve been having a summer class at church snd it’s all ITALIAN!

I decided to make fettuccine alfredo, based on Father Hank’s recipe:

Boil one pound of fettucini, according to package directions. While pasta boils, shread 8 ounces of fresh Parmesan cheese. Also, melt one stick of butter in large pan. Once the fettucini is al dente, drain well. Pour into melted butter and stir carefully. Add cheese and stir, making sure all of the noodles are covered with cheesy butter.

Serve immediately.
