Fettuccine Alfredo Roman Style!
Who doesn't like Fettuccine Alfredo? Its so rich and creamy and absolutely delicious! Some of you may think it takes a long time to make it but that is not true. It takes only 20-25 minutes. For this dish, you will need: heavy cream, sour cream, butter, onion, fettuccine noodles or even linguine will do. Also, the secret ingredient which is tuna. Yes, tuna and yes this dish was cooked for me in Rome.
To begin, chop onion and saute in butter and a drizzle of olive oil until browned on edges. Then add two cans of chunk white tuna in oil - do not drain. Stir and add 1/4 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Continue to stir adding fresh dried herbs: rosemary, mint and oregano and even some dill but not necessary. I like that taste of dill from time to time especially with any kind of fish.
Boil your pasta until tender, drain and ladle onto a plater. Pour over the top the creamy rich sauce and top with Parmesan cheese. Its that simple.
