The original owner of Alfredo's Restaurant in Rome, Alfredo Di Lelio, is said to be the originator of this delicious but rich dish of worldwide fame. He has since passed away, and the recipe for both the fettuccine pasta and the sauce remain secret. Some say the creaminess and lightness of the fettuccine and/or the sauce was in the cheese he used, or the addition of a little olive oil to the preparation of the fettuccine, others that the fettuccine was cooked in milk.
The quality and taste of the ingredients is the key to success with fettuccine Alfredo - especially the fettuccine and the cheese. The fettuccine should either be freshly made and as thin as possible, or, if store bought, the best fresh (not dry), thinnest pasta you can buy.
