5 stars from 1 rating of Mindy's Fettuccine Recipe

Did you know that years ago the original Fettuccine Alfredo was made without cream? It was made by Alfredo di Lelio from Rome, he created it for his wife who was having morning sickness. That is why fettuccine is so popular for hangovers as well. This recipe is very simple and yummy! I wanted to create this hub to share it with all my family and friends and others who want to eat delicious fettuccine with out all the calories that comes with the richness of the dish. I use simple ingredients that can be found in most grocery stores and I have combined it with a super easy recipe, which makes this fettuccine dish a no fail for first timers!
