Dinner for 2 in the mountains
Last weekend we took a 48 hour trip to Gatlinburg. It was last minute, and super fun. Some friends of ours just bought a cabin and offered it to us for a few days! I will be sharing our 48 hours of fun over a few posts…But naturally I wanted to start with food!!!
I made every excuse in the book not to take this trip because this is a super busy season for us. But Greg reminded me that the work will always be there, but it’s important for us to get away and soak up time together. So that’s just what we did. For our first night there we got there a little later than expected, so we decided just to stay in and relax. I decided to cook my famous Fettuccine Alfredo. Well, it’s not my recipe….it’s Pioneer Woman’s. But it’s one I love, and One I don’t burn when I make haha! Look below for the recipe!
Live in the moment and eat what you love with the ones you love. Especially when there’ s pasta!
1 pound fettuccine noodles
1 stick butter
1 cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups freshly grated Parmesan
Cook the pasta according to package directions.
In a saucepan or skillet over low heat, warm the butter and cream. Season with salt and pepper.
Place half of the Parmesan into a large serving bowl. Pour the warm butter/cream mixture over the top.
Drain the pasta and immediately pour it into the bowl. Toss a couple of times, and then sprinkle in the other half of the Parmesan. Toss to combine, thinning with pasta water if necessary.
Serve immediately as a main course or accompaniment to meat or salad.
***I bought a rotisserie chicken and used that in this dish! Easy and YUM!***
