National Fettuccine Alfredo Day

For Fettuccine all’Alfredo, the fettuccine is cooked in the same skillet in which the sauce is made. The original recipe was created in 1914 by Alfredo Di Lelio, owner of Alfredo alla Scrofa restaurant in Rome. In a restaurant setting, the hot fettuccine are tossed with the cheese, butter and cream and, as the cheese melts, it unites with the butter and cream to form a coating or “sauce” for the pasta.
In Italy, “Alfredo sauce” and “Fettuccine Alfredo” are not common terms. Long before Alfredo created his recipe, Italians enjoyed fettuccine al burro, fettuccine with butter, or fettuccine al burro e panna, with butter and cream, both served, of course, with grated cheese. Alfredo just tweaked the recipe slightly. When butter was added both before and after fettuccine was put in the serving bowl for tossing, it was known as doppio burro, double butter.
Di Lelio doubled the amount of butter in the bowl before the fettuccine was added, creating a triplo burro, triple butter, recipe: more butter made more of a sauce. The chef created the dish to entice his pregnant wife, who had lost her appetite. He served it with egg fettuccine, hoping that the “nutritious dish” would do the trick. Today, we know that a typical serving of the “nutritious dish” has 455 calories, 38g of fat, 291mg of sodium and 143g of cholesterol. But for people who love rich, creamy food, it hits the spot!
