Jen Thorpe’s Amazing Fettuccini Alfredo

In honor of Jen Thorpe, who passed away two and a half years ago and in whose memory the Just-a-Break foundation is operated we want to share this delicious recipe. Our editor, Heather Godfrey, grew up by the Thorpe family and said that Jen submitted this recipe to a neighborhood cookbook. When invited to parties, Heather is often specifically asked to bring this dish because it’s so yummy. We tried it out and we agree, this is the best. It’s simple and delicious. Thanks Greg for permission to share Jen’s famous recipe.

1 pt. heavy cream

1 stick of butter

2 tbsp. cream cheese

¾ c. parmesan cheese

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 pkg fettuccine noodles

Cook fettuccine in a large pot of boiling water. Add a tsp. of olive oil to prevent from sticking or boiling over. In a saucepan combine butter, heavy cream and cream cheese. Simmer until all is melted and mixed well. Add the parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring constantly. Spoon over fettuccine. The sauce is also great over tortellini and ravioli!
