Fettuccine Alfredo or Fettuccine al burro is an Italian pasta dish of fresh fettuccine tossed with butter and Parmesan cheese. As the cheese melts, it emulsifies the liquids to form a smooth and rich sauce coating the pasta.
What can I add to Alfredo sauce to make it taste better?
Extra seasonings and spices will go a long way in adding flavor to a boring jar of sauce. Some of my personal favorites include salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, dried basil, oregano, onion powder, or seasoned salt. Start with small amounts (½ teaspoon at a time) and add as needed, in order to avoid over-spicing
