So, I get home today and Julie is teaching a lesson. I poke my head in and she says "hey, can you throw some pasta on or something? I don't have a plan for dinner." After getting the water boiling and the pasta cooking, I scan the fridge and find nothing complimentary. Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Teriyaki Chicken from Costco, Hmmm...what to do. After a quick google search on "how to make alfredo sauce" I manage to whip up something that took about 10 minutes that my "gourmet cook wife" even liked! All you need is:
- Butter (about 1 stick...but I used about 7/8 of a stick)
- Grated Parmesian Cheese (about 1 1/2 cups)
- Heavy Cream (about 1/2 Cup). And yes, I had to ask, "Heavy Cream" is the same as "Heavy Whipping Cream."
1. Cook pasta
2. Heat up that concoction
Yep, that easy. Of course, I added salt and pepper to the sauce. To the pasta, I added olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano (just a tiny), basil, a little garlic, and I added some drops of lemon juice.
