Sometimes something simple and comforting is all one needs for supper. Tonight was one of those nights. A meal that can be on the table in 30 minutes or less (this took slightly less) is aces in my book no matter what it is, but when it is this soothing and delicious it certainly bears sharing. Mixed greens lightly tossed with vinaigrette and a glass of chilled white wine was all the accompaniment needed.
Fettuccine Alfredo for Two
1⁄4 cup butter
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1⁄3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Few grating of fresh nutmeg
6 ounces fettuccine, prepared as directed
In a medium saucepan over low heat melt butter. When butter is melted, add cream cheese, stirring until combined. Add heavy cream, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Simmer over low heat, stirring constantly until sauce thickens, 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan and nutmeg. Toss with cooked and drained fettuccine noodles. Serve immediately.
