Fettuccine Alfredo for One

My little baby child (yes, she’s 16, but she’s still my little baby child!) hasn’t been feeling well. Turns out, she has a sinus infection. Pretty much any time, but especially when they are sick – they ask their mama for something – they get it.

She’s one that loves alfredo – and she prefers it without protein – just sauce and pasta. And, that’s what she wanted for dinner. Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough parmesan or cream to do a full recipe – so I did a recipe just for her.

I just used 1 tbsp butter, 1 tsp minced garlic, about 1/3 – 1/4 cup of heavy cream and about the same of parmesan cheese. I just melted my butter in a small sauce pan. Then I added in the garlic and let it cook for a couple min, then reduced the heat and added in my cream – then added in the cheese a little bit at a time, stirring as I added it.

Then I just tossed it with a single serving size of fettuccine pasta, topped with some fresh basil – and my baby was happy!
