I don’t know the statistics around Italy, but I know for sure that in the US Pasta Alfredo is the most popular Italian pasta.

You might not believe me when I tell you that this kind of pasta (as any other popular dish) was invented accidentally by a man in love!

That’s what men in love are capable of!The Story of Alfredo sauceOnce in Rome, one Italian restoration specialist became a father of a newborn son. After delivery his wife lost appetite completely and refused to eat anything.

Inspired by his new happiness and saddened by the fact that his wife had no appetite, the Italian man decided to cook something delicious for her, something she would not be able to say "no" to.

So, he created it: the pasta with the most delicate sauce made from butter and grated cheese taken from the center of the head of the cheese. It is a tender part.

The wife fell in love with it and immediately asked for more. They decided to make the restaurant customers taste it, and the latter also asked for more.

The glory of Pasta Alfredo has spread throughout Rome and then throughout the world. But it gained special popularity in the US – the land that had welcomed a lot of immigrants from Italy.

Over time they started to add mushrooms, chicken, seafood and more to Pasta Alfredo – invented many variations of this Italian dish.Alfredo sauce recipeItalian cuisine has become popular in the US. And pizza and pasta became number one, of course. And we all know about a delicate butter sauce served with macaroni in cafes and restaurants.

They buy Alfredo sauce as often as they buy ketchup. If you decide to purchase it, consider these best store-bought Alfredo sauce brands.How do you prepare Alfredo sauce at home? It is not difficult at all.

Alfredo sauce: the preparation

To prepare 4 portions, you will need:

  • 300 grams of thick cream (20-30% fat content)
  • 20 grams of butter
  • 80 grams of Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 teaspoon of salt
  • black ground pepper on a tip of the knife.
  • You don’t have to strictly follow the recipe. If you want to prepare a very delicate sauce, don’t add salt and pepper. Need to add piquancy? Add one peg of grated garlic. But such ingredients as Parmesan cheese, butter and fatty cream should remain unchanged.

    Take a deep saucepan and pour cream into it.

    Bring it to a boil on low heat and add butter.

    Let’s turn to cheese now. You can leave a part of Parmesan cheese for sprinkling or use it all at once. In this case your sauce will come out thicker and clammier.

    Stir the sauce and add it to macaroni while still stirring them. It must be served right away.
