Scallops Fettuccine Alfredo

For a slight change of pace tonight (we’re still hooked on homemade pasta) we decided to make Scallops Alfredo.

Alfredo sauce is one of the most simple sauces to make, but it requires good ingredients to work properly. Heavy cream, butter, fresh parmesan cheese and garlic are the basic ingredients, and if you substitute any of them for something cheaper, the sauce will suffer.

Tonight’s sauce seemed to come out too thin and salty at first. The Parmesan cheese I bought tasted very salty, but somehow between the addition of the scallops and the fettuccine, the sauce came out just right.
