Homemade Fettuccini Alfredo Recipe

A creamy and comforting cheese sauce, with a hint of pepper and nutmeg, coats fettuccine noodles in fine fashion. "This is wonderful as is, but sometimes I like to add sliced fresh mushrooms and black olives that have been sauteed in butter and garlic," notes Jo Gray from Park City, Montana.

MY REVIEW

My family loved this! I didn't have any Romano, so it was all Parm. I added chicken breast and fresh broccoli. This will become a staple dish.

I loved this recipe. It's easy and quick to make. But the butter in always separates from the sauce. it's still tasted really good, but there is a puddle of butter on the bottom of my plate. What can I do from that not happening next time?
