Families "secret" Fettucini Alfredo recipe :)

Pine City, NY

First off I just wanted to say why I am sharing this. I really dont believe "unlike my father" that recipes should be secret in the first place... yea they are family tradition.. but why make such a beautiful thing like this.. and keep it secret???? With that said I hope EVERYONE tries this!!! It is sooooooooooo yummy and there are so many variations you can do its crazy!!

If anyone does this and likes it.. Please let me know as I have alot more sitting around :)

Whats needed

1.As many noodles as you think you will need. If you use a whole box then make sure you double the alfredo sauce!
2.1 whole onion chopped
3.1 whole head of garlic "trust me!"
4.1 TBLS of italian seasoning
5.1 Jar of creamy alfredo sauce. "Cheaper than all the creams and stuff to make your own.. and you really cant taste the difference trust me I have done both ways"
6.Salt and Pepper to taste
7.2 Eggs
8.1 tsp of oregano
9.2 TBLSP Olive oil "extra virgin" If you have ever tasted olive oil strait from italy.. you will NEVER buy store stuff again!! It doesnt even taste the same or smell the same! Its worth it to look online how to get a-hold of it!!
10.Things that you love like mushrooms,chicken,meat,clams,spinache... good lord I have added about everything and it turns out awesome!


Ok first off.. Boil some water for your noodles while you chop up the onions and garlic.

In a big skillit put the olive oil,onions,garlic and salt/pepper in and fry until transparent then turn off. "You can add your special stuff if that needs to cook as well at that point"

Only cook the noodles till they bend.. dont cook them like you normally do!

Add them all together with the rest of the ingrediants in the large skillit. And simmer until the noodles look done stirring quite often. If things get a little too thick dont be afraid to add some milk here and there!

Right at the end when things look good add the two eggs and let them get into the mix and solidfy

Cover until the rest of what your preparing is done then serve with a yummy red wine!!

I hope you all try this and let me know if you like.!!

Hi Guys, I have a question about Alfredo Sauce in a jar....can I use it as the base for Macaroni & Cheese by adding chedder & Velveeta cheese to the sauce? Deb

I acually use CREAMY alfredo sauce alot in different recipes. It saves a ton of money on thickening ingrediants and just plain ol goes good with everything. I bet that would be awesome tasting!

I haven't found the jarred alfredo sauces to be very cheap...not complaining, I'll buy it anyway, but spaghetti sauces are much cheaper.

Depsi: I bet adding it into mac and cheese would be divine!

You are correct on the pricing.. BUT when you take in consideration all the things that go into true alfredo sauce... spending 1.70 for a jar of Two Brothers Alfrea sauce is worth it :)

Happy cooking

Dave, when I am unstuffed from Thanksgiving and sometime before Christmas stuffing, I am going to make your dish. It sounds so very tasty and satisfying to the taste buds.

I made some the other day with some olive oil that I had 4 cloves of garlic, some caiyan pepper, and some crushed red pepper soaking in for like 3 weeks. YUM

Thomasville, GA(Zone 8a)

Do you put the 2 eggs on top and let them cook until they are done? Do you mix them up in the sauce after they are cooked?

Pine City, NY

What I do at the end is what makes it soooooo thick and creamy. I add the eggs right at the end and stir them in good! That way they have time to cook and solidify. "roughly 5 min more or so" Dont be afraid to add some milk at the end to thin things out!!!

Dave, I came across your "secret" recipe. I agree you should never keep a great recipe like that a secret. I am afraid to even think of the calories! I love any kind of Italian cooking, and I have been experimenting with a bunch of recipes. I got this great cookbook from Amazon written by Lisa Caponigri. She spent time in Italy and learned the secrets of the masters. I'll share some of my recipes and some of her's that I have tried so far. By the way, my family loved the recipe.

rockthrower i am looking forward to your recipes! and to some of the "secrets of the masters"!
