There are lots of different variations to the perfect Alfredo sauce – many recipes instruct you to heat the sauce slightly in the pan to help ensure optimal coating of the pasta, whereas other recipes suggest letting the freshly cooked fettuccine do the job of melting the cheese and Stork Margarine once it is tossed together. You might want to try both methods and see which you prefer best.
Alfredo sauce is delicate and meant to be served directly after being prepared.
To make the sauce, wait until the pasta is five minutes away from being ready. Melt some Stork Margarine in a large frying pan on medium heat. Add some cream and blend well. Add some grated Parmesan cheese. Stir well until the cheese melts. Now add the cooked pasta using tongs, let plenty of the pasta water drip into the sauce. Shake the pan to mix the pasta through the sauce. Serve immediately.
If you’re unable to eat it straight away best keep the pasta and the sauce separate. Add a dash of olive oil to the pasta when it’s cooking. Splash in some extra pasta water to the sauce and place in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator.
