veg alfredo pasta recipe

fettuccine alfredo was originally invented by alfredo di lelio in his mother’s restaurant in italy. the original and authentic recipe is made with plenty of butter and parmesan cheese. thus the pasta is very rich. moreover fettuccine pasta gets a creamy and smooth coating of melted butter and cheese on them – source wikipedia

the authentic alfredo sauce does not use cream but only butter and cheese. though there are some variations made with eggs and cream. what we get served in the italian restaurants in india as alfredo pasta is usually made with cream.

in fact i have been making from 10 years a pasta recipe with mushrooms, veggies and low fat cream. back then i did know it was a variation of alfredo pasta. i just made it on a whim once and it was so good, that i made it again many times. since i used to add more cream, i never shared the recipe thinking thats its rich and heavy and may not suit some readers.

in this recipe of alfredo pasta also, cream is added, but the quantity is less and low fat cream is used. avoid using heavy whipping cream. instead you can use half and half or light cream.

in this pasta recipe i have used a mix of red bell pepper, carrots and potatoes. you can add any veggies of your choice. you can even steam or grill them and then add. i am sharing an easy method where i have cooked the veggies in a pan and then added the cooked pasta to them.

for the pasta, you can use a variety of pasta like macaroni, shell macaroni, rigatoni and farfalle. while serving alfredo sauce pasta, garnish it with some dried or fresh parsley and some grated parmesan cheese.
