Carla Makes BA's Best Fettuccine Alfredo | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Real alfredo should never (never!) include cream; the silky sauce is the result of an emulsion between the grated cheese, melted butter, and starchy pasta water. This is part of BA's Best, a collection of our essential recipes.

    Tried this method tonight and ended up with mozzarella like parmigiano-reggiano that just wouldn’t break down.

    It was still a great dish, but I gotta figure out where I went wrong.

    Wondering if the chunky grated Kirkland brand was the culprit, and/or not starchy enough water as I was using fresh pasta.

    Shocked to see this from BA. The original Alfredo sauce is created in the pot together with the drained pasta, hot pasta water added at the end as necessary. Is the original too difficult?

    The recipe failed when I tried it. The cheese seized and wouldn't melt. Suspect I had the heat on too high. Any ideas to solve this problem?

    honestly, I just made this recipe and it turned out EXTREMELY salty. to the point of unedible. The cheese is already salty, that idea of filling the water with a lot of salt is just unnecessary. all the other flavors are hidding behind it. it's a shame, since you did explain well everything else.
