Fusilli with Alfredo Sauce

Alfredo sauce comes from Rome, and involves a velvety blend of butter, Parmesan cheese and heavy cream. Stores market Alfredo sauce in cans, jars and refrigerated containers, but you can make your own fresh version with a few ingredients and precious little time at the stove. Make homemade Alfredo sauce by gathering your ingredients, cooking the sauce and serving it over your favorite food.

For the final day of cooking pastas with different sauces, I had to pick up Alfredo Sauce. Chinnu loves creamy onion white sauce with Macaroni. So I couldn't skip not trying this on him. Infact of all the three this had more brownie points as it tastes similar to the one they love eating every week.

The creamy Alfredo sauce is made by cooking cream with butter and infused with cream. The more cheese you add, it tastes better. Of course this is one of those right off the pan dishes, atleast for me, it is. So I dig in the moment I finish clicking the pictures.

Since this is quite not to our palate which would want a spicy treat, I added Red Chili flakes to my bowl.

Fusilli with Alfredo Sauce

Ingredients Needed:

Fusilli Pasta - 1 cup
Cream - 1/2 cup
Butter - 2 -3 tbsp
Pepper powder as per taste
Parmesan Cheese - 1 cup
Salt (check as Parmesan cheese will be salty)

How to make the pasta with alfredo sauce.

Cook fusilli as per directions, drain it on a colander.

Heat butter in a non stick pan, when it starts melting, add the cream and combine everything well. Cook in low for it to get mixed well.

Then salt, pepper and bring to boil. Next add the grated cheese and mix in well.

Now toss in the boiled pasta, and combine everything well.

Ensure the pasta is thin, if required add hot water and bring to boil.

Serve hot with some grated cheese on top.
