Alfredo Pasta, the traditional recipe, is made with only 3 ingredients, fettuccine, Parmesan cheese and butter. Zero cream!
Fettuccini Alfredo originated in Rome by Alfredo di Lelio. He made this dish for his wife Ines who was pregnant with her third child. She craved something that would give her and her baby a delicious taste and energy. And it worked. So how did it become famous in North America?
Apparently in 1927 Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, on their honeymoon dined at Alfredo di Lelio’s Rome restaurant. They absolutely loved his Fettuccine Alfredo and when they returned back to the United States, they couldn’t speak more highly of this delicious creamy Pasta Dish.
Then in 1966, the Pennsylvania Dutch Noodle Company started to market their “Fettuccine Egg Noodles”. Although their recipe included cream and Swiss cheese together with Parmesan and Butter.
So, if you are craving Fettuccine Alfredo why not try it the Traditional way without the cream?
For this recipe, infuse with the Cannabis Oil you made a few weeks back, pay attention to your dosage amounts per ml and proceed with caution. Due to the time to digest THC the Cannabis should be kicking in well after you’ve finished the last few delicious bites of whatever dessert you have prepared.
