Simple Fettuccine Alfredo

Oh. Oh my. Oh wow. Those were my first words upon eating the.most.amazing.pasta.ever. I mean, seriously. I've never been a huge fan of fettuccine alfredo, but this was phenomenal. And about the easiest pasta dish I've made. The whole thing took less than 15 minutes. Aaaand we ate the entire pound of pasta within two days. Slightly embarrassed. But it was that good. 

You must make this. I can't tell you how great it was. And it was insanely easy. There is NO way to mess this up. Thank me (and the Pioneer Woman) later. :)

While I saw this recipe on my friend Jourdan's blog, it is actually courtesy of The Pioneer Woman.

Note: If you enjoy this recipe, I think you'll go crazy over this Simple Chicken Alfredo Pizza!
