Fettuccine Alfredo (basic recipe)
1-1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1-2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
pinch of nutmeg
9 ounces fettuccine
1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon white pepper (i used black. i'm a rebel.)
In a large heavy skillet, stir 1 cup of the cream and the lemon juice to blend. Add the butter and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts...about 3 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest and nutmeg. Remove from the heat.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of boiling water to a boil. Add the fettuccine and cook until al dente. Drain. Add the pasta, remaining cream, parmesan, and the salt and pepper to taste.
Toss over low heat until the sauce thickens slightly , about 1 minute. Serve immediately!
Note: Cook the chicken (I sauteed in a grill pan with salt and pepper) and steam broccoli beforehand if using. Toss in last.
