Alfredo pasta Instructions:

  1. In a large pot, bring 2-2.5 q/liters of water to a boil. Add 1/2 tablespoon salt, followed by the pasta. Cook until al dente (i.e., slightly firm to the bite, not crunchy nor soft). Drain well.
  2. As the pasta boils, make the sauce: In a large skillet (large enough to accommodate the pasta), melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium or medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until tender, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and mushrooms, and cook until mushrooms are tender, about 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add the rest of the butter and heavy cream, and bring just to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for several minutes, until sauce has thickened slightly. Stir in nutmeg. Add 1/4 cup parmesan, then more if desired. Adjust seasoning to taste. Stir in pasta and cook on very low heat, tossing to combine for 1 minute until warm.
  4. Serve immediately. Garnish with parsley or chives if desired.

Pasta to Sauce Ratio

This is a concern of mine every time I order pasta in a restaurant because I love plenty of sauce. I take food very seriously, you know. Therefore, this recipe yields enough sauce to enjoy with the pasta—just the right amount if you ask me. Some Italians may disagree as they believe that a pasta dish is more about the pasta, so if you agree with that view, then you can always cook more pasta to add to the sauce.

Thickening the Sauce

Who likes soupy, thin sauce? No one, or at least, no one I’ve ever met. To make a thick sauce, I cook it on low-medium heat until it gets to the right consistency. The parmesan cheese also thickens it once added.
