This Super Simple Fettuccini Alfredo recipe  can be made in just under 20 minutes. It’s SO easy and your family will love it!

This is one of those recipes that everyone loves…whether or not it’s skinny-jeans friendly is another story entirely. But Fettuccini Alfredo is delicious, no matter how you look at it…creamy, rich, cheesy and cozy. You could throw in some chicken, mushrooms, peas…the possibilities are endless. OR just eat it plain.

It’s one of my kid’s favorite meals. This recipe is the one my mom used when I was growing up. Her recipe card said specifically use “Locatelli Cheese”…which really just meant Pecorino Romano, but you could easily sub in fresh grated Parmesan, or even a blend of cheeses like Romano, Pecorino, Asiago…whatever!


  • 1 lb fettuccine
  • 1 cup half and half
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 cup fresh grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • fresh grated black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley (optional)
