Alfredo Pasta Twist

COOK TIME

We all love pasta, and when we come up with a new twist on an old favorite, who could ask for more?

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound twist pasta
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups (1-1/2 pints) heavy cream
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2.  Cook pasta according to package directions and drain; return it to pot.
     
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently. Add flour and stir constantly 1 to 2 minutes, or until mixture is smooth and lightly browned. Stir in cream and remove from heat.
     
  4. Add Italian cheese blend, salt, and pepper; mix well. Pour over cooked pasta and toss to coat.
     
  5. Place in prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and then bread crumbs.
     
  6. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until warmed through. Serve immediately.
Option

We like to add 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg to the cream mixture for some added flavor. (But we do that only when we're sure that everybody we're cooking for likes the flavor of nutmeg.)

Does anyone have a simple alfredo sauce recipe?

i would like the same answer just a good simple one

Classico (in grocrey stores) It's great ! (add grated parmasan and it's amazing !!)

go to this http://www.lidiasitaly.com/recipes/detail/1159 it is as simple as it gets w/o being just a white sauce

love the nutmeg option!

always looking for good side dishes......this one is absolutely wonderful with some good bbq ribs

Was a hit with the family...let me tell u they r hard to please!

One would have to own interest in a chicken farm for the eggs & a dairy for the cream to keep up w/many of your suggested recipes.

I am pretty sure you could make your own substitutions and give it your own twist. :)

I substitute non dairy liquid coffee for the heavy cream and it works well.

SORRY.....the substitute is coffee creamer.

In my opinion, this dish tastes ok but it was kinda dry and greasy. I am not sure what it needs, less butter or maybe some milk or half and half.

I used half and half, and 3/4 cup of parmesan cheese as the only cheese. It was wonderful!!
