This is one of those comfort food dishes. I decided to cope with what I had in the fridge and the covers so nothing really fancy. I always have Parmesan cheese as well as cream in the fridge, and normally dry pasta in the cupboard. Below is my quick and easy recipe to make spaghetti Alfredo. This is a pretty easy dish to make, and a great week great meal. This recipe doesn’t take long to cook, so its fast. Its that’s the cook the pasta at the same time as you’re making the Alfredo sauce, that way you don’t have to wait for the pasta to finish.
¼ cups of unsalted butter,
¼ cup of all-purpose flower,
1 and ½ cups of Parmesan cheese (shredded or shaved),
1 cup of cream,
3 cloves of crushed garlic,
Kosher salt (1/2 cups), and
2L of water.
Bring the pasta water to a boil and then add the half cup of kosher salt. While the water is boiled place is spaghetti in the water. As soon as you place the spaghetti in the water melt the butter in a medium sauce pan. Once the butter is melted and slightly turning brown add the garlic let cook for a few seconds then add the flour and create a rue. Once the flour and is cooked (the flower smell is gone). Add a cup of cream slowly keeping it warm so that the temperature of the pan doesn’t drop. This creates a more stable cream mixture, and we need to fast or cooking.
