Fettuccine Alfredo is one of those decadent pasta dishes that we like to order when we want to spurge on our pasta dinner. It’s actually really simple to make and only takes a few ingredients.

You can change it up by adding grilled chicken strips, cooked shrimp, peas, zucchini, carrots, roasted red bell peppers, and more. Be creative and jazz it up or keep it simple and traditional.
