Hi Bold Bakers!
Only recently have I started to appreciate just how yummy Fettuccine Alfredo is. I love that rich, creamy garlic-infused sauce with thick comforting noodles —man, it’s one of my favorite pasta dishes! Although I didn’t grow up eating this in Ireland I can 100% see why Fettuccini Alfredo is such a fan favorite. After making other noodle dishes in a mug like Microwave Macaroni and Cheese in a Mug and Microwave Mug Ramen, I knew up next was a fettuccini alfredo, I just didn’t realize I’d be creating the Fastest Way To Make Fettuccini Alfredo! The best part is this isn’t just any recipe, it’s my super simple make-ahead recipe.
I am no stranger to a frozen dinner when I get busy which is why I started re-thinking the way I meal prep. As you all know I love to get the most out of my microwave and I enjoy making single-serving treats in a mug. So when it came to creating the recipe for this classic pasta I knew exactly what to do. There is no reason why something prepared in advance shouldn’t be super delicious and taste just like how it does in a restaurant. This make-ahead fettuccini alfredo will blow you away as it doesn’t just look like the real deal… it is the real deal!
And guess what? If you want to use any one of my Homemade Pasta recipes, you absolutely can.
