One Pot Pasta Alfredo
Mac&Cheese for Italian nobility. This is what it looks like before firing up this really easy Sunday night treat.
(Update: if you are really generous with fresh ground black pepper, this comes near "Cacio y Pepe" for deep zing.)
Ingredients: (Pay attention to pasta and liquid measurements.)
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
12 ounces Linguini or thick Spaghetti pasta
1 1/2 cups whole milk
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, much more if you want deep heat. (1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper is a nice optional addition)
3 cups water
On cup finely grated Parmesan.
Use your deep skillet to saute the garlic in the olive oil a minute or two.
Add the rest of the ingredients except the grated Parmesan. Heat to boiling, then turn heat down to a strong simmer. Poke, prod and mix (to keep the pasta from sticking together) until the pasta absorbs the liquid and is creamy, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Turn off heat, add the grated cheese while stirring so the cheese coats the pasta.
Serve hot with a garnish of cilantro or parsley. Add plenty of fresh ground pepper at the table.
