Favorite Ingredients Friday-Italian Edition

Today is Italian Edition of Favorite Ingredient Friday. I love pasta dishes. I also love the Olive Garden, but we do not have one near us, so I got this recipe off of the Recipezaar. We have changed as we have made it several times! I have bought the new KRAFT Grate-It-Fresh Parmesan Cheese to make this recipe, it last for many recipes. Enjoy!

Improved Olive Garden Alfredo Pasta
1/2 cup butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 (12 ounce) box fettuccine pasta (or your choice of pasta)
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium/low heat. Add the garlic, cream, pepper and salt, and bring mixture to a simmer. Turn the heat down if the mixture reaches a rapid boil or it could boil over. You just want a simmer. Add the cheese, and continue to simmer sauce for 8 minutes or until thick. While sauce cooks, bring 4 to 6 quarts of water to a boil and add the pasta. Cook pasta for about 12 minutes or until done, then drain it. Spoon pasta onto serving plates with Alfredo sauce poured over the top.
Note- we hardly ever eat this without adding shrimp or chicken!! Yummy!

Alfredo sauce is my favorite. Luckily our town has an Olive Garden that just opened last month!
