Now I have been married for many years. Most of my life, it seems. But I have never made Alfredo sauce. Never. So yesterday I got brave and invited my sister, who loves chicken fettuccine Alfredo, out for supper and decided to cook it for her. I looked up many recipes and it didn't look too tough, so figured I could handle it.
Then I decided if I was making Alfredo sauce, I should also make home made fettuccine noodles. Okay, that's only egg and flour according to P-Dub's site, so I'll bet I can do that, too.
Well, if I was in a cooking mood, I might as well bake bread too!
So I made a loaf of bread with fresh chives, another Pioneer Woman recipe. And I mixed up the eggs and flour and readied the counter to roll and cut the noodles. I started the chicken and got the water/broth mixture ready to cook the noodles. Then I worked on the Alfredo sauce. I decided that the recipe was just too rich and full of calories, so I used skim milk instead of cream. I figured the stick of butter, 8 ounce package of cream cheese, and cup of parmigiana cheese was rich enough! But don't tell PW I used skim milk instead of cream!
My sister, Lois, proclaimed the meal a success. And it was good. A mess to clean up, but good. And I will make home made noodles again. They were fun and good. Probably won't make the Alfredo sauce very often though. I figure it had about 4,972 calories in it!
