Recipe: Fettuccine Alfredo

At dinner time i made pasta for my mom and little brother..and i have been trying to find the perfect recipe for fettuccine alfredo and i decided to give it a try! Its actually a very light recipe and very easy to make! It contains no cream and that was my main goal! Because usually this type of sauce is really heavy but not this recipe..

*fettucine is a type of pasta
*alfredo is a creamy white sauce

So im going to give you the steps and show you pictures of how to make it. If your a fan of'll love this recipe..


25 grams of butter
2 tablespoons of white flour
2 cups of milk (any type of milk will work)
¾ cup of grated parmesan cheese
A bag of fettuccine pasta (quantity depends on how much you would like)



1.Melt the butter in a saucepan. When it is fully melted..turn of the heat.

2.Add the flour and mix it until it turns lumpy. (I know it doesnt sound or look appetising but that is the recipe.It tastes much better than it looks!) ;p

3.Add the milk and put it back on the heat and stir. (I would recommend to use a wooden spoon when your stirring rather than a metal whisk because it can scratch the metal at the bottom.)

4.Press down on the lumps with the wooden spoon while your stirring.Then add the parmesan cheese and keep stirring.(The mixture should start to thicken alot because the cheese should melt.)

5.Add salt and pepper to your sauce and keep it on very low heat.

6.Start boiling your pasta.(A tip to know when your pasta is ready..make sure that before you add the sauce you take a piece of the pasta and break it in half..if you see a white colour in the middle then its still not has to be all one colour and soft.)

7.When the pasta is ready..drain it and then add the sauce to it and mix.

8.Add the toppings of your choice.(My brother and mom decided to have grilled chicken on the side while im a vegetarian so my toppings were mushrooms and sundried tomatoes.Yummy!) :D
