Fettuccine literally means “little ribbons” is a type of pasta popular in Roman and Tuscan cuisine. It is flat thick pasta made with egg and flour.This is a pasta dish made from fettuccine tossed with Parmesan, cream and butter. As the cheese melts, it emulsifies the liquids to form a smooth and rich sauce coating on the pasta, one of the oldest and simplest ways to prepare pasta.

STORY BEHIND THE CREATION

Alfredo di Lelio, an Italian restaurateur, created Fettuccine Alfredo in 1908.  After his wife had given birth to their first son that year, she did not have an appetite.  To help encourage her to eat, he created a dish of noodles, cheese and butter.   She liked the dish so much that she thought he should put it on the menu at his small restaurant in Rome.  Everyone around the world has been enjoying this dish ever since.  Today it is one of the most popular pasta dishes in America.
