Fettucine Alfredo

As you know I am a huge fan of Disney!  One of their former restaurants, Alfredo's, had the best fettucine alfredo I have ever tasted!  It was actually the original fettucine alfredo and it differs from its competition because it actually contains no cream!  This recipe is so simple and absolutely delicious!

2 sticks of butter
1 lb fettucine
2 cups parmesan cheese

Bring water to a boil and salt.  Then cook your pasta for about 10 minutes.  Right before draining reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water. 

In a small bowl mix together the 2 sticks of softened butter and parmesan cheese.  I used a fork to mash the two together. 

Once the pasta is done cooking and the water has been reserved in a separate bowl, drain the pasta.  Then add the butter and cheese mixture in the bottom of the pot and melt for a minute or two.  Then add the pasta back into the pot with the butter and cheese.  Toss together with tongs until everything is melted.  Slowly add a few tablespoons of the water until a sauce forms.  You may end up using the whole half a cup, but don't pour it all in at once.  Serve immediately and enjoy!
