Intro: Fettucine Alfredo Abbreviated.
This is a simple Fettucine Alfredo. Sort of an adult macaroni and cheese. We have already done instructables on making pasta, Chicken can be cooked a zillion ways and I am not going to reinvent the wheel. In this case, I did make the noodles from scratch with the help of a pasta machine. Store bought noodles will not make it less elegant. The chicken breasts (covered with butter and salt) were baked in an oven for about a half hour at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. As RR might say, "How easy is that?". You could fry or poach some boneless chicken and do as well. Baking meat is so darn easy and no frying pans to clean.
Most Italians will use what ever is on hand. and not always what some recipe says The main thing is the same type of ingredients can be used. We will be substituting a bit here also. Lastly, It is an "American" custom to use heavy cream to make alfredo, Not really that big a deal. Besides heavy cream is just too darn expensive and I do not have a cow in the backyard.
