Fettuccine alfredo was originally invented by alfredo di lelio in his mother’s restaurant in italy. The original and authentic recipe is made with plenty of butter and parmesan cheese.

  • In this pasta recipe I have used a mix of red bell pepper, carrots and potatoes. You can add any veggies of your choice. you can even steam or grill them and then add. I am sharing an easy method where I have cooked the veggies in a pan and then added the cooked pasta to them.
