Easy alfredo pasta

Recipe from: 23 September 2011

Ingredients 5
Servings 6
Time 0:05


  • 200
    fresh pasta tagliatelle
  • 80
    salted butter
  • 80
    finely chopped mixed herbs (parsley, basil, garlic chives)
  • 90
    grated pecorino, parmesan or mature white cheddar cheese
  • freshly milled black pepper


Cook the pasta in plenty salted water until el dente. Drain but do not rinse.
Melt the butter in a large pan. If you like a nutty taste, allow it to turn a little brown but not too brown: it will taste awful. Now add the cooked pasta and toss until coated with the butter.
Add the herbs and cheese and toss until the cheese has melted.
Serve at once with freshly milled pepper.

Chef's Tip:
Add cream and diced grilled bacon or ham or lardons for alternatives.
