I (& my son…her daddy) have to whip this up regularly for my granddaughter Lily; it’s her favorite!
I know….I’ve posted about Lily and her Alfredo obsession. But to be honest…for brunch, lunch or after school, I go whatever’s easiest route 😉 (For the record, I also know ‘real’ or ‘authentic’ alfredo sauce does NOT have cream it).
So I spotted something new in the store. “Pronto” pasta? Made for the ease of one pot meals. Start with pasta right in the pot of cold water. No straining/draining of pasta water and make/add your other ingredients to same pot.
The conclusion? It didn’t make any difference to me. Maybe with a different recipe? Or getting use to it? Like teaching an old dog new tricks?
I prefer fettuccine, linguine, bucatini or HOMEMADE pasta with Alfredo myself; but Lily LOVES penne.
LILY’S PENNE ALFREDO
I left it for using regular pasta, in general (cook pasta according to directions) …that’s what I still use.
