TOTAL TIME
25 MIN
Ingredients
  1. 1 lb fettuccine noodles
  2. 2 cloves minced garlic
  3. 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  4. 1 pint whipping cream (heavy or regular)
  5. 4 oz cream cheese
  6. 6 oz shredded parmesan or 3 cheese blend (romano, asagio, and parmesan)
  7. 2 tbsp dried Italian herbs
  8. 1 tsp garlic salt
  9. 1 tsp pepper
Instructions
  1. Cook fettuccine noodles according to package directions
  2. In a large sauce pan on medium heat, add garlic and melt butter.
  3. Pour in whipping cream and bring to a simmer.
  4. Add 1/2 shredded cheese and all the cream cheese into liquid and whisk consistently until the cheese is fully integrated.
  5. You'll know because your whisk won't have any cheese hanging off it.
  6. Add the other 1/2 of the shredded cheese and whisk consistently until the cheese is, again fully integrated.
  7. Turn heat down to low and let it sit for 10 mins to thicken. Stir occasionally.
  8. Add garlic salt and pepper to taste.
Notes
  1. Pasta: Traditionally, it's fettuccine. I prefer linguine myself but really any pasta you can eat with a fork is good.
  2. Chicken: Boneless skinless chicken breast goes great with this dish. How I prepare it is fairly simple: Sprinkle with Italian herb seasonings, pepper, and garlic salt. Grill it on your BBQ or George Foreman grill. Chop it up! Done!
  3. I also really like simply boiling, shredding, and mixing the chicken in with the pasta. Super yum!
  4. Mushrooms: Sautéed mushrooms are also an outstanding topping for this dish. Simply slice your mushrooms, put them in a skillet with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, diced garlic, and Italian herb seasoning. Sauté over medium heat. Drain or pat down with paper towels.
