Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo and Cheddar Biscuits

Last night was fettuccine alfredo night. I typically like eating pasta dishes when I go out to eat, but I am not a huge fan of eating pasta while I am at home. Since my awesome cooking has kept us eating at home since we moved, I thought it was time to make some sort of authentic pasta dish. Fettuccine Alfredo is incredibly easy to make, so if you're ever in a pinch you should consider this dish!! I paired the dish wish cheddar biscuits. I don't know if any of you have ever eaten the cheddar biscuits at that national sea food restaurant that rhymes with Led Robster, but if you have you MUST try my recipe for biscuits because it is so much better!! [or at least I think so].

First, lets start with the Fettuccine. Here's what you will need:

  • 16 ounces fresh fettuccine
  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice - [I would scale this back some the next time I make it.... it's a little overbearing!!]
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups grated Parmesan
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • salt and freshly ground pepper

  • Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender, stirring occasionally for the amount of time called for on the package. Drain
  • Stir 2 cups of the cream and the lemon juice in a heavy large skillet to blend
  • Add the butter and cook over medium heat just until the butter melts, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes
  • If the sauce becomes to thick pour the remaining 1/2 cream into the mixture and allow to thicken slightly, about 3 minutes. 
  • Remove from heat

Now for the yummy cheddar biscuits. This is what you will need:
Ingredients -
  • 4 cups baking mix
  • 4 to 5 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • In a mixing bowl, combing the baking mix, cheese and water. Mix until dough is firm. Using a small scoop, place the dough on the prepared pan 
  • Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter and stir in the combination of garlic powder, salt and onion powder. 
  • Brush over baked biscuits immediately upon removing from ovem

 This was such a great meal and I am excited that it turned out so well!! I will definitely keep making this dish [particularly the biscuits because they are easy and incredible!!] I hope you give this a try too!

Until next time, happy cooking! :)

This was a great dish with lots of flavor. Lets just say the biscuits were as good as a place that will remain nameless, but rhymes with Led Robster.

I have a question. The ingredients for the fettucine specifies 2-1/2 cups heavy cream. In the directions for the fettucine, only 2 cups of cream are mentioned. What do we do with the extra 1/2 cup of cream? Thanks for your help. I can't wait to try your recipes! :-)
