Fettuccine Spinach Alfredo

The worst thing about alfredo sauce is that one portion is enough calories discredit any form of exercise you have done...ever...in your entire life.  But the best thing about alfredo sauce is it's SO DANG GOOD!

The cream cheese in this sauce really adds a creamy flavor.   And don't scimp on the parmesan cheese, that fake powdery stuff will leave your sauce tasting chaulky. 

Fettuccine Spinach Alfredo


Ingredients:

1 pt. heavy whipping cream
1 stick butter, salted
2 heaping Tablespoons cream cheese
1/2 C REAL parmesan cheese, shredded
1 tsp garlic powder
A handful or two of fresh baby spinach (the amount depends on how spinachy you want your meal to be), chopped
1 package fettuccine noodles, cooked
2 Tbsp olive oil

Combine whipping cream, butter and cream cheese and melt together over medium heat.  Ensure it is mixed well.  

In a frying pan, cook the spiniach in olive oil until wilted.  Combine with the sauce. (you can reserve some of the cooked spinach to place on top of your pasta...it just looks pretty)

Simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Combine cooked noodles and sauce.
