Thanks...I buy the brick and shred it myself, I'm going to check out the olive garden imposter....maybe I am better off not knowing because that stuff is Fattening and I would eat way too much (lol)

What is the name of the restaurant? and/or where is it ... it might help us to know the restaurant and they type of region they may be cooking from?

SemiG's ^ recipe is exactly how the Italian restaurant I worked in made it! Try the European butter ( cultured) and full fat heavy cream. You could add half of the Parm. for Romano cheese, that has the edge that maybe your fav. place uses?!

I make an easy one that we just love. 1/2 cup butter (real), 1/2 cup light cream, 1 cup grated parmesan cheese, 1 T. chopped parsley flakes, salt & pepper. Heat butter and cream in pan until melted and blended. Stir in cheese, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley.

Nutmeg is a little tip I use on anything cheesy, including this one. SG is 1000% right, but the wedge Parm and grate it yourself! No green can o cheese:) Btw, my kids are CRA CRA for this sauce and it comes together in a Hot minute!!

I looked at my original recipe and found a # of errors. I must have had an extra glass or two of wine when I wrote it. So I updated it and hope it is something you can work from. Happy cooking! Fettuccine Alfredo

I love a recipe I got from a friend in college: 8ozs dry fettucine, 6 tbsp butter, 1 cup sliced green onions, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1.5 cups shredded Parmesan cheese, salt & pepper to taste, 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg, and optional: cubed chicken breast cooked in garlic and olive oil. Directions: cook noodles to "al dente" and drain them; keep warm. In a wide fry pan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add green onions and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often. Add cream and boil rapidly until slightly thickened, and large, shiny bubbles form (about 2 minutes). Add hot, drained noodles to pan and toss gently. Add 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese and toss until coated. Add another 1/2 cup cheese, salt and pepper, and toss. Sprinkle nutmeg (and chicken, if using) and remaining cheese over the top just before serving. Tip--use green and white noodles; can also use fresh mushrooms when you add green onions and garlic.
