Making a dish the way you like it, especially if you’re just serving it to yourself or your family. But for the average home cook who views cooking videos on YouTube who may not know about the origins of these dishes, has a responsibility to at least mention the traditional methods and ingredients. It helps viewers stay informed and also boosts YOUR credibility.
“Fettuccine alfredo are not a thing in Italy,”
In the US it has become a staple in many restaurants that brand themselves Italian.
In Italy, the dish is most similar to what Italians call pasta burro e parmiggiano (pasta with butter and parmesan cheese).
YOU way of making pasta is often referred to as pasta del cornuto – which translates as “cuckold’s pasta”,
The even more popular way of serving pasta alfredo in the US – with chicken – is beyond imaginable.
It is not just poultry and pasta that are not allowed to mix – meat and pasta very rarely make it on to the same plate. Pasta is one course (primo) and meat is another, fully separate course (secondo).
