Fettuccine Alfredo

Best Fettuccine Alfredo

It’s hard some days to figure out what to make for dinner! Can I get an Amen!? I’ve talked about this year I’ve started using a meal planner, and it’s helped a ton. It has also helped in not wasting groceries which has been nice because I’ll check the calendar and make my grocery list based on the lunches and dinners planned for the next week. Every Saturday I have a “NEW RECIPE” night. Pinterest and all the delicious recipes from amazing blog buddies help with that night. There are seriously so many options, which means I am always trying something out each week, and I LOVE finding new favorites!! This next recipe happens to be one of our family’s all-time favorite dinner ideas – Fettuccine Alfredo.

Fettuccine Alfredo happens to be one of the recipes that everyone has a version of. This particular recipe comes from Love, Pomegranate House. If you haven’t been to Talitha’s site before, you MUST check it out. So many great creations on there!! My kids love chicken but are sometimes picky when chicken is mixed into things (ridiculous, I know) so I thought I would make this Easy Fettuccine Alfredo without the chicken.


The recipe is so simple and ends up making a delicious Alfredo sauce that everyone loves. Whether you add chicken or not, it’s a simple and tasty dinner idea that the whole family can enjoy.

Easy Fettuccine

The kids loved this simple fettuccine recipe, and so do we. We like to add grilled chicken and veggies to it while the kids stick to the pasta. We also like to add shredded cheese to make it even cheesier. It really is the best!

The thing we love most about this recipe is just how simple and quick it is. I try to have these ingredients on hand at all times so that I can make this when I’m out of ideas for dinner. AND it’s delicious!! #win

  1. Delicious!! My daughter is a HUGE fettuccine fan. I usually make it every other week, but I do add chicken in which she loves too. Great recipe!!

    1. Thanks, Crystal! Can’t go wrong with Fettuccine, right? I prefer it with chicken but usually leave it out because the kids don’t like it as much with it. :/

  2. This looks delish! It’s very similar to the recipe I use, but I always add a pinch of nutmeg…sounds crazy, but it works I swear!

  3. I made the fettuccine last night for a dinner party; it was delicious and SO easy! Thank you!! That is definitely a keeper. So glad to have found this site!!

  4. I noticed in your ingredient’s you have garlic powder listed. Then in your directions you wrote garlic pepper. Which one do you use ?

  5. Love the look of all your recipes. However, if you could please put the Weight Watchers Freestyle Points in the recipe, it would be most helpful.
    Thank you

  6. I have made this quite a few times, now. it is our favorite. I love how easy it is to make & it’s so creamy. we love adding chicken to make even more filling! my kids & hubby love it!
