One of my all time favorite dishes is Fettuccine Alfredo at the Olive Garden restaurant. I wanted to find a recipe for it that I could make at home. This is the closest thing I have found.
The recipe was on a local television show, Good Things Utah, a couple of years ago. I adapted the recipe slightly to make the sauce closer to what I wanted. I prefer to add some mushroom sautéed in butter, however, no one else in my family likes mushrooms. Sometimes, I add mushrooms to my portion only.
You could also add chicken to this also. I never have, because I figure I’m blowing my calories for the day already without the addition of the chicken.
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 Tbsp flour
- 1 2/3 cup whipping cream
- 1/3 cup skim milk
- 1/4 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 10 oz. fettuccine, cooked
- sautéed mushrooms, if desired
- In sauce pan, melt butter. Then add flour and mix until smooth.
- Mix in cream, milk, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bring to boil and then simmer until sauce is decreased by half and thickened.
- Stir in Parmesan cheese until melted. Pour sauce over cooked fettuccine and toss. Toss in mushrooms if desired. Serves 5.

[…] than a regular fettuccine recipe. It wasn’t bad, but I must say I still prefer my favorite fettuccine recipe or the carbonara recipe made with cream cheese that I have shared before. I just make sure to eat […]
I just wanted to leave note telling you how much I LOVE your blog! I always come here FIRST when I need a recipe, idea or inspiration. I need to add to a small amount of alfredo mix I had — and voila! Love your blog — keep up the awesome work!
Oh wow Laura you recipe looks so good. I tried my hand at one last week and i did not like how the sauce turned out. It was a bit thick for me I think i might try your recipe. We add sauted chicken on ours its my dd’s favorite.
mmmm…I love alfredo!
Oh Yum! This is one of my sisters specialties and always a family fav!
This looks great, one of my favorite pasta dishes.
What an easy and delicious recipe. I will be trying this soon.
