For this recipe, I am going to be starting off with the best hot dogs on the market, Nathans.  If you disagree, you are just plain wrong and I feel sorry for you.  Nathans is an American staple and worth our praise.

How do you make Alfredo Sauce from scratch?

How do you make Alfredo Sauce from scratch?

There is nothing better than a good homemade alfredo sauce.  I have often asked myself, How do you make Alfredo Sauce from scratch?  Many people do not know how to make Alfredo Sauce from Scratch.  It is super easy and will change your life.  You will never want to pay for one of those flavorless bottles of sauce again.

History of Fettuccini Alfredo

Between restaurants, cookbooks and supermarket shelves, Alfredo sauces vary widely, both in style and quality. Here’s a rundown of fettuccine Alfredo’s history and sauce variations.

The original dish was an extra-buttery version of an Italian standard, fettuccine al burro — fettuccine with butter and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. It was created in Rome in 1914 by chef Alfredo di Lelio and served at his restaurant, Alfredo’s. Legend has it that in 1927, silent-film stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks discovered this dish while honeymooning in Rome. Upon returning to Hollywood, they served it to friends; soon, fettuccine Alfredo was popular — but in a new, American guise.

According to The Italian-American Cookbook by John Mariani and Galina Mariani (Harvard Common Press, $19.95), since American butter and parmesan cheese lacked the richness of their Italian counterparts, cream was added to the sauce to compensate. This version became an Italian-American classic. Although popular in the United States, it never took root in Italy.

Ultimately, Alfredo sauce became a victim of its own popularity. Supermarkets began selling ready-made Alfredo sauces, thickened with flour or cornstarch and sometimes made with cheap ingredients. Many chain restaurants began using the pre-fab sauces, too. Noodles tossed with this convenience product can’t compare with this recipe for fresh fettuccine Alfredo made with Parmigiano-Reggiano, unsalted butter and fresh cream. Sure, you can make the original Roman recipe now that true Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano is widely available; but the version with cream is divine, and worthy of an occasional calorie splurge.
