Fettuccine Alfredo in a Mug

Save Recipe

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 Fettuccine Alfredo in a Mug. The best part is this isn’t just any Fettuccine Alfredo in a Mug, 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 Microwave Fettuccine Alfredo in a Mug will blow you away as it doesn’t just look like the real deal…it is the real deal!

    Hi Gemma,
    I just wanted to tell you how I really enjoy all your video’s and recipes. I am from the North of England, Newcastle…now living in Ontario, Canada. I feel a bit of home just listening to you.

    I am 60 years young , lol….I love how your recipes are so easy , I have been baking for years and just love that now I can just get something delicious ready quickly for myself and my hubby or my coffee/Tea get togethers with friends and family!c
    I am not very computer savvy, but I am so glad I found your video’s, I love Cooking and Baking.
    I would love to see and be able to buy a published Cookbook by you!!!

    Thank You So Much!!!

      Hi there,
      How lovely to hear from you. The people in the North of England are a bit like the Irish, earthy people, I think we are connected.
      Ontario would have been a big change for you when you moved there, but lovely too.
      I am in the process of writing a cookbook, it is a long job! Stay tuned, we will keep you informed as we go along.
      It is good that you are here with us, do take a look through the recipes here. There is a FREE E-Book with the mug recipes too, you will need to download it to your appliance though, it is not a print version.
      thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hey Gemma! Just wanted to know if it is important to refrigerate the fettuccine alfredo before cooking. Can’t we just make it and microwave??

    • Gemma Stafford on March 30, 2018 at 4:03 am

      Hi Huza,
      yes, you can just carry on and cook it, all will be well,
      Gemma 🙂

    I made this for my husband and grandson for a Sunday lunch. They loved it. I had to substitute heavy cream for crème fraîche and shredded emmental for parmesan, but it didn’t make much difference as they haven’t had it with the recommended ingredients, I also threw in a few lardons. It was quick and easy and the best thing, my grandson wanted a second one.

    • Gemma Stafford on September 18, 2017 at 2:25 am

      Haha! yes! always feeding the grandchildren!
      My Mum’s first question to the grandchildren when they walk in the door is ‘are you hungry?’ they think it is hilarious!
      great though, and so satisfying when they eat well, good for you,
      Gemma 🙂

  9. Jocelyn on September 4, 2017 at 3:19 am

    Can the milk be substituted for something else?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 4, 2017 at 5:52 pm

      great question, Jocelyn. So you need the cream because it thickens as it heats. If you use milk you don’t get a thick sauce. There really isn’t a substitute for it. Sorry.

  10. Dej on September 2, 2017 at 11:52 am

    Can you substitute cream for milk

    • Gemma Stafford on September 2, 2017 at 12:45 pm

      not really because the milk won’t thicken, when’re as the cream does. hope this helps!

      Gemma.

  11. Carol on August 31, 2017 at 1:14 pm

    Can the chili and Alfredo be made up and frozen? There is just me and I like making this meals then freezing for another day. Thanks so much for all the work you do for these mini recipes. Love this!

    • Gemma Stafford on September 1, 2017 at 3:38 am

      Hi Carol,
      I think it will be good for the Chilli, but no so much for the alfredo, I am not sure how it would hold up when defrosted. you can of course cook the pasta, and freeze that ready to use,
      Gemma 🙂
