A kosher-dairy fettuccine alfredo - Does anyone have an easy recipe or can steer me to one? Thanks. Also, what is the difference between using fettuccine or linguine for the pasta?

  1. I don't have a recipe, but I'm fairly certain 99% of recipes out there have nothing obviously un-kosher. Just make sure to use a good quality Parmigiano Regiano.

    1. repost to the home cooking board'll get much better responses.

      1. The differances in the pasta is the width of the noodles I belive. As for the recipe, I agree, ask on a genral cooking board and just buy Kosher ingredients. I have made it before and it is pretty easy but I didnt "love" my recipe, so i too am looking for a new one. Perhaps you will share a good one when you find it? Please????

        1. Alfredo sauce is only 3 ingredients (aside from salt - depends on your parmesan - and pepper) and is "easy" by definition. I've always used 1/2 stick of butter to a cup (each) of cream and grated parmesan.

          as avitrek points out, the key is good parmesan. Use the grated (or grate it yourself), not the powdered (which is an abomination).

            The original recipe does not call for any cream.

                Yeah, it was invented by a guy named Alfredo, of course.

                  Well just like Caesar salad there's always an origin story, but the fact is, when people say "Alfredo" they mean butter-cream-cheese.

          2. I took a look at the home cooking board. There seems to be different variations to the cheese used - Parmesan, Bechamel, Romano and people had included from the following spices; salt, pepper, oregano, as well as cracked black pepper and fresh parsley.

              Bechamel is not a cheese. It is a French Mother sauce.

              A lot of cheaper recipes may use it, but an authentic recipe will only use Parmigiano Regiano as a thickener and not a roux.

              Pecorino Romano is a similar cheese to Parmigiano Regiano but will probably give you a saltier flavor.
