Probiotic fettuccine alfredo is a super simple and easy pasta dinner that can be made up in less than 15 minutes! It is a rich, deliciously creamy and comforting meal that will make you feel like you are in Italy.
In fact, this pasta recipe is so simply that my kids can easily make it themselves! Add a quick tossed salad and you have a delicious and healthy meal.
A Probiotic Twist
It’s one of my requirements that all recipes on Fermenting For Foodies must somehow involve fermented foods. While my probiotic fettuccine alfredo recipe will still be delicious even if you don’t use cultured cream, it is even better with cultured cream! The tangy flavour of cultured cream adds a depth and sophistication to this classic dish. And since the cream is stirred into the pasta without being cooked, it’s a great way to get a dose of probiotics! Even the pickiest eaters like pasta with cream sauce!
There are a number of different ways to culture cream. None of these recipes require heating so they are simple to make. Just use cream instead of milk.
- 1 lbs uncooked pasta
- ½ cup butter
- 1 cup heavy cream (see notes)
- 1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
- salt and pepper to taste.
- Cook your pasta until it is completely done.
- Drain, the pasta, then throw it back into the hot pot, but don't return the pot to the heat.
- Stir in the butter until it's completely melted.
- Add in the remaining ingredients, stir to coat the pasta completely then serve immediately.
-If you want a probiotic fettuccine alfredo then use cultured whipping cream.
-For a lower fat pasta sauce use low-fat yogurt instead of cream. It won’t be as creamy, but it will still be delicious! I like my “yogurt alfredo” with a bit of lemon zest to make a really zingy pasta sauce.
