How to make it

  • for the alfredo sauce:

  • Heat a large pan over medium heat. Add in the cream and butter, letting butter melt and bring to a simmer; whisk occasionally. Meanwhile, prepare the fettuccini. When the cream mixture is simmering, whisk in the garlic and pecorino romano. Add in a few turns of freshly ground black pepper, to taste (I like mine really peppery!). Keep simmering on low until thickened. When fettuccini is al dente (boxed noodles should cook about 8-9 minutes; fresh noodles only take a minute), drain from water and carefully stir into the sauce. Coat the fettuccini and pour the contents of the pan into a serving bowl. Serve with extra pecorino romano and fresh Italian parsley.
  • for the pepper chicken:

  • Heat olive oil in a dutch oven over medium high. Coat the chicken with seasonings, and add to pot when oil just begins to smoke. Cook on the first side for about 5 minutes (covered), then flip and cook another 5 minutes. When the bottom of the pot gets dry, add in a splash of wine. Cook on medium until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 15 minutes (time varies depending on the size of your chicken pieces). Remove the chicken to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. Slice the chicken, or serve whole, if desired. Spoon the leftover juices from the dutch oven over the chicken to serve.
  • Serve the chicken and pasta with roasted asparagus, crusty garlic bread, and a glass of the wine you cooked with, if you want :)

    Great post Rene. Unfortunately, out here in Lala Land I have to take whatever kind of Romano I can get, whenever I can find some. I'll keep my eye out and next time I find some Romano I'll give it a go. Love a good Alfredo. RJ

    Mighty fine dish. Quick and easy. Nothin' hard about making this.
