When we say authentic, we don’t mean you have to roll your own pasta dough from the grain-field in your backyard. We just mean that this recipe doesn’t need cream to make it creamy. The butter, salted pasta water, and Parmesan will save you money AND taste better. We promise. Just follow the directions and you’ll have authentic pasta, nearly just as fast as if you used pre-made Alfredo sauce out of the jar. THIS IS WORTH IT.
