This Lemony Fettuccine Alfredo recipe is one of my personal favorites. You can make it quick and easy from pantry staples ~ the flavor is bright and vivid!


serves 4

Total time

0 minutes


  • 12 oz fettuccine pasta
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • juice of 1-2 lemons (I use 2)
  • 1½ cups finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup finely chopped parsley (reserve some for garnish)
  • salt and fresh cracked black pepper


  1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until just al dente. Be sure to salt your water well!
  2. Meanwhile melt the butter in a pan over low heat and add the cream. Stir to combine and let it just come to a simmer. Add the lemon juice and stir.
  3. Add the cheese and stir until it is completely melted. I like to take the pan off the heat to do this. Taste the sauce and add salt, if needed, and plenty of fresh cracked black pepper.
  4. When the pasta is done, drain it and add it to the sauce, along with the parsley. Toss everything well, and serve up immediately, with more parsley for garnish.
