Fettuccine Alfredo

One of my all time favorite dishes is Fettuccine Alfredo at the Olive Garden restaurant. I wanted to find a recipe for it that I could make at home. This is the closest thing I have found.

The recipe was on a local television show, Good Things Utah, a couple of years ago. I adapted the recipe slightly to make the sauce closer to what I wanted. I prefer to add some mushroom sautéed in butter, however, no one else in my family likes mushrooms. Sometimes, I add mushrooms to my portion only.

You could also add chicken to this also. I never have, because I figure I’m blowing my calories for the day already without the addition of the chicken.
