Who doesn’t love pasta? There are so many variants in it that there’s one for every kind of mood and taste, TBH. Pasta is art, it is a warm hug and comfort food for many (me fosho)! And what if I tell you that you can master this art in just 10 easy steps? Yes, that’s right! Our girl Vidhi Doshi a.k.a @Ramenhairedgirl shared the perfect recipe to make fusilli alfredo pasta at home with the utmost ease. Read on to find out how…
What You’ll Need
1 1/2 cup pasta (fusilli)
1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp butter
1/3 cup finely chopped onions
2 tsp finely chopped garlic
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
1 pack Amul cream.
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
Here’s How You Can Put It All Together
Step 1: Boil enough water and salt it. Add your pasta to it and cook it till al dente (cooked but still has a bite to it). Do not throw away the pasta water!
Step 2: In a pan, heat olive oil and butter in a pan.
Step 3: Add the onions and sauté till translucent.
Step 4: Add the garlic and sauté as well.
Step 5: Add the freshly ground pepper, ground nutmeg and mix for 30 seconds.
Step 6: Now add the heavy cream (you can use half and half milk and heavy cream) and cook for 1 minute, stirring continuously.
Step 7: Add the cheese. I’ve used 1/3 cup parmesan.
Step 8: Now adjust the consistency of the sauce by adding the pasta water. If you have used milk, you might not need this. I have added 2-3 ladles of pasta water. This water is salted as well, so adjust the taste of the sauce by tasting.
Step 9: Now add the hot pasta, mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes and serve hot with chili flakes, oregano, pepper, and more cheese!
How quick and easy was that? The next time you’re in the mood for some creamy, cheesy pasta, you can cook it at home in just 10 easy steps! I think I am going to try this out tonight, would you too? Let us know in the comments below.
