Fettuccine Alfredo with Asparagus and Sundried Tomatoes

Do you reserve certain foods for special occasions?

One dish I always cook on New Year’s Eve is Fettuccine Alfredo. If we’re home that is. This year, we’ll be spending the night with friends, so I decided to make it a little earlier than usual!

Fettucine Alfredo with Asparagus and Sundried Tomatoes | Hello Little Home #Pasta #vegetarianI served my Fettuccine Alfredo with asparagus and sundried tomatoes, and I’m sharing the recipe. You won’t believe how easy this meal is!

There’s a reason I only make Fettuccine Alfredo a couple times a year, and that’s because it’s super rich. This classic pasta dish has a few key ingredients: butter, cream, and cheese.

Fettuccine Alfredo couldn’t be easier to make. Hot pasta is tossed with melted butter, cream, and then freshly grated Parmesan cheese. These simple ingredients create a decadent sauce that thickens and coats the noodles. All you need to finish the pasta is salt and pepper.

For this recipe, I also added sundried tomatoes and asparagus. However, feel free to add your favorite vegetables. Peas, broccoli, and sauteed mushrooms all work very well. Or skip the vegetables altogether, as I usually do, and serve a fresh salad alongside.

However you serve it, this Fettuccine Alfredo with Asparagus and Sundried Tomatoes is sure to be a hit on your next special occasion!
