Pasta with Butter and Cream – all’ Alfredo

Pasta all’ Alfredo

Cuisine: Italian
Region: Northern Italy

Yes, Pasta with Butter and Cream – a.k.a. Pasta all’ Alfredo – has very little to do with the all-millennial “tuna salad” lunch or dinner; yet, good food is good food and there’s no two ways about that. 🙂 This is an easy and fast pasta recipe to make – and you don’t need to eat a lot of it to feel satisfied. Enjoy!

Serves: 4-6
Cooking time: approx. 20 min.
You will need: a pot and a skillet.


  • 500 g (1 Lb) pasta of our choice – Fettuccine, Linguine, Spaghetti, Gnocchi or any type of pasta you like.
  • 1/4 cup of butter.
  • 1 cup whipping cream.
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese + additional cheese for serving.
  • Salt and pepper.


For the pasta

  1. Take a pot, fill it up with water up to two thirds, and add salt.
  2. Put the pot on the stove and turn the fire on to high heat, bringing the water to a boil.
  3. Add the pasta to the pot and cook, uncovered, according to instructions.
  4. Drain the pasta.

For the Alfredo sauce

  1. Take a skillet, add the butter, put it on the stove and turn on the fire to medium heat.
  2. Melt the butter.
  3. When the butter foams, add the cream.
  4. Simmer the mixture for about 2 minutes or until it starts to thicken.
  5. Season with salt and white pepper.


  1. Empty the pasta in the skillet with the butter and cream over medium fire.
  2. Add your 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.
  3. Toss the pasta and sauce in the skillet until the sauce coats the pasta. It should take about 20 to 30 seconds.
  4. Serve immediately, while it’s hot.
  5. Sprinkle each serving plate with additional Parmesan cheese, to taste.
