To make homemade fettuccine alfredo, you only need 4 ingredients–fettuccine pasta, Parmigiano Reggiano, salt, and unsalted butter. The key ingredient here is the Parmigiano Reggiano; make sure not to substitute it with other cheese.

Other types of cheese will clump together and not give the same taste. It is a very simple and straightforward dish that is ready in just a couple of minutes.
