Fettuccine Alfredo with Sea Scallops and Shrimp

“So, for those special occasions when you want an impressive, delicious but oh so easy dish to make I give you Fettuccine Alfredo.” Lisa


1 pound fettuccine noodles (cooked to al dente perfection)

1 cup heavy cream

1 ½ - 2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese

2 teaspoons dried parsley

Optional Ingredients: pan seared sea scallops and cooked shrimp or cooked and sliced 
chicken breast and steamed broccoli


In a small sauce pan heat cream just until small bubbles appear at the edge of pan.

Do not boil; we're looking for very warm cream that will be hot enough to melt butter and 

Add butter and stir gently until melted.

Add grated cheese. Note: I start with 1 ½ cups of cheese and test to see that my sauce is still 
thin and reserve the other ½ cup to sprinkle on top of the pasta and sauce at the table. 

Sometimes the cheese makes the sauce a little gloopy as it cools so feel free to play with the 
cheese amount or you could add a little more heated cream to thin if need be. 

Some people even thin with some of the pasta water (reserved just for this). 

I just save some of the cheese to melt in at the table.

Drain the cooked pasta and put it in serving dish; immediately pour the sauce onto the pasta 
and the rest of the cheese (add optional ingredients here).

Toss everything together to combine and serve immediately.

Serves 4-6

    Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant Alfredo in Rome in 1914, after leaving his first restaurant run by his mother Angelina in Piazza Rosa. In this local spread the fame of fettuccine all'Alfredo. In 1943 Di Lelio gave the restaurant to others outside his family. In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio reopened his restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30 "Il Vero Alfredo" (“Alfredo di Roma”), which is now managed by his nephews Alfredo and Ines, with the famous “gold cutlery” (fork and spoon gold) donated in 1927 by two well-known American actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. See also the site of “Il Vero Alfredo” (“Alfredo di Roma”)
    We must clarify that other restaurants "Alfredo" in Rome do not belong to the family tradition of "Il Vero Alfredo". We inform that the restaurant “Il Vero Alfredo” is in the Registry of “Historic Shops of Excellence” of Rome Capitale.
    Regards Alfredo e Ines Di Lelio
