Fettuccine Alfredo

I love pasta. My hubby loves pasta. My kids even love pasta. We love pasta! This is one of our favorite pasta dishes. It is quick, easy and super, super yummy! Did I mention that it's a little fattening? Not to worry though, just a little. Okay, okay, maybe a lot. Because it is a bit fattening, I only make this Fettuccine Alfredo on special occasions. We usually have it on Valentine's day and maybe one other time during the year. To make it a little less fattening, I usually add some chicken or broccoli. Both are delicious with this Fettuccine Alfredo!

4 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg yolk
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
4 cups hot cooked fettuccine noodles
Salt to taste

Melt butter with cream and nutmeg in a wide frying pan. Stir in pasta and quickly bring to a boil, stirring gently from time to time. Let boil rapidly for 1-2 minutes. Blend a little of the hot mixture with the egg yolk. Remove from the heat and stir in the egg yolk and cheese. Blend thoroughly. Serve immediately.
