Olive Garden Fettuccine Alfredo Restaurant Recipe
Good Morning. I have a funny little story for you. Okay, it's really not "laugh-out-loud" funny -- sorry -- but kinda "interesting" funny.
A while back I went over to my Parent's house for dinner and we had Fettuccine Alfredo. It was interesting. Not what I normally think of as Fettuccine Alfredo -- but good. It was thicker and a bit "sharper" tasting than I am used to.
After I had tucked into it, Mom got a big kick out of telling me it was Olive Garden's Fettuccine Alfredo recipe and that I had given it to her. (I printed out all of the recipes that I had on my computer a few months ago, put them in a notebook and gave them to her. I really wouldn't recommend this. It took a 3 inch binder, stuffed to the gills to hold them all. But luckily I worked at Kinko's at the time and got a nice discount.)
Back to the Fettuccine Alfredo. Although I already have several Olive Garden Copycat Recipes, I hadn't tried this one yet, because, to be honest, I didn't think it would be any good. It includes "cream cheese" and I just couldn't wrap my mind around that. I love cream cheese (doesn't everyone?) but I just couldn't imagine putting it in Fettuccine Alfredo.
Well, I ate 2 helpings of the Fettuccine Alfredo and I ate my words (or thoughts, since I never actually said anything about it to Mom. I wouldn't dare! ;)
It isn't bad. It's not my favorite Fettuccine Alfredo -- but I can see how many people would be fond of it. Maybe you will be.
Here is the recipe for you.
