Fettuccine Alfredo

Ash Wednesday 2022. No meat. Not a problem. There is always Fettuccine Alfredo. I made the pasta on Sunday. I really love the pasta attachment for the KitchenAid. I made enough pasta for 2 meals. Freezing both portions. 

Tonight I made the only Fettuccine  Alfredo recipe I know.

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into tablespoon pieces
Dried egg fettuccine
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (1 cup)

Melt butter in a large saute pan.
Cook fettuccine in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water until al dente.
Reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water, then drain fettuccine in a colander.
Immediately toss the fettuccine with butter and salt in the sauté pan, then slowly add 3/4 cup cheese, tossing constantly and adding enough cooking water to keep pasta moist.
Season with salt and pepper to taste, then sprinkle with remaining cheese.
