Fettuccine Alfredo in a vip version. Not just butter and Parmesan, the extra ingredient that makes them even better

Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken is a popular success dish in the United States, where it is closely linked to Italian cuisine, almost like a traditional Italian-American dish! In reality it is an unknown recipe in Italy, where the fettuccine Alfredo consisted of egg pasta creamed with creamy butter and plenty of parmesan, creating a smooth and tasty cream on the pasta: simple “fettuccine with butter and parmesan”.

In the United States there is no Italian restaurant that does not serve the famous fettuccine Alfredo, which however will not be prepared following the original recipe: the version that has spread overseas, in fact, involves the use of cream instead of butter and the addition of seasoned chicken breast. A simple and tasty dish, which everyone will like, to try!
