Browned Butter Alfredo Pasta

Fall has arrived here in North Carolina and with temperatures dropping, I am starting to crank up my crock-pot again and serving warm foods. This is one of the easiest meals to prepare and it has great flavors, you can really taste all of the rich components. They combine together to make a decadent meal that you will make over and over. The sauce is made in the time it takes to boil the pasta, so it is seriously quick. I served this over whole wheat pasta and loved every bite! This dish only has 6 ingredients, including the pasta & salt and pepper. It makes for an easy grocery list!

You could easily serve a protein of your choice on top, but pasta is so filling, I didn't feel we needed it. My husband has deemed this alfredo sauce his new favorite and I see why, I think browned butter makes everything better. Remember these cookies?  I will have to agree with him, this pasta was pretty delicious.

1 lb. of Pasta
1/2 cup of Salted Butter
1 cup of Heavy Cream
1 1/2 cups of Parmesan Cheese, grated
Salt & Black Pepper, to taste


First, prepare your pasta according to package directions.

While your pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a large saucepan or deep skillet over medium heat. Swirl the pan occasionally, when the butter starts to turn to a medium-brown color, immediately reduce heat to low and stir in the cream.

Now, stir in the cheese and make sure it has melted completely. Taste and add in lots of salt and pepper.

Toss the drained warm pasta with the sauce.

Serve immediately.


Happy Cooking,
