Noodles with Alfredo sauce: my way

13 Jul

I usually prepare pasta with a delicious sauce called Alfredo. But mine it´s an own version as rich as the sauce was created by the Italian Alfredo Di Lelio. This was elaborated by the restaurateur on his mother´s restaurant located on it used to be Piazza Rosa, in Rome, in 1908. Nowadays, their descendants still preparing it on «Il Vero Alfredo», although they´ve moved to another site in the Italian capital. Essentially, it is a very creamy sauce, made it with butter and Parmesan cheese, and these ingredients make possible season it in many ways.

The present recipe doesn´t use butter, but I can assure is not necessary. I´ve used bacon that I´ve fried with a little bit olive oil. The fat that usually releases the bacon is enough for stir-fry the chive and the cornflour. Once more I decided to cook noodles, because is between pastas one of my favorites, but you can prepare yours. Is always the sauce the authentic main character. Let’s go into the kitchen.

150 gr bacon finally cut
150 gr mushrooms
1 chive
2 garlic cloves
1 cup cream + 1/4 cup milk
1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Maizena corn flour
80 gr grated Parmesan cheese
1 pinch ground nutmeg
black pepper
1 tsp finally chopped fresh peppermint

How to prepare Alfredo Sauce: my way

  1. Fry the bacon with 1 tbsp of olive oil until they browned. Add more olive oil if it were necessary and add the garlic, finally laminated, and the chive. Put salt to taste, sauté for a few minutes and later add the Maizena and stir.
  2. Incorporate the laminated mushrooms, add salt, sauté a couple of minutes and then add the cream and milk. Season it with ground nutmeg, black pepper and check the salt.
  3. Let it cooking down-middle heat until the sauce have thickened. Add the half of the cheese before finish cooking.
  4. Once it has thickened incorporate the pasta, previously cooked in plenty of salty water and very well drained.
  5. Serve immediately and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and the chopped peppermint.

This is another way, easy and delicious, to prepare pasta. Whatever pasta you prefer, put a peppermint twig or a bay leaf into the water you cook the pasta and you will see such a great result. If you want to read more Italians recipes click here.

    With reference of your article we have the pleasure to tell you the history of our grandfather Alfredo Di Lelio, who is the creator of “fettuccine all’Alfredo” in 1908 in restaurant run by his mother Angelina in Rome, Piazza Rosa (Piazza disappeared in 1910 following the construction of the Galleria Colonna / Sordi).
    Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant “Alfredo” in 1914 in a street in central Rome, after leaving the restaurant of his mother Angelina. In this local spread the fame, first to Rome and then in the world, of “fettuccine all’Alfredo”.
    In 1943, during the war, Di Lelio sold the restaurant to others outside his family.
    In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio decided to reopen with his son Armando his restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30 «Il Vero Alfredo» (“Alfredo di Roma”), which is now managed by his nephews Alfredo and Ines, with the famous “gold cutlery”” (fork and spoon gold) donated in 1927 by two well-known American actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks (in gratitude for the hospitality).
    See also the site of “Il Vero Alfredo” (in which there are also informations on franchising) .
    We must clarify that other restaurants «Alfredo» in Rome do not belong to the family tradition of «Il Vero Alfredo» in Rome.
    We inform that the restaurant “Il Vero Alfredo” is in the registry of “Historic Shops of Excellence” of the City of Rome Capitale.
    Best regards Alfredo e Ines Di Lelio
