Awesome Alfredo Sauce

  My oldest child Chase, is a HUGE Fettuccine Alfredo fan, but a very particular one...
He doesn't like bottled sauces, and he will only eat those prepared with real butter and cream.

Here is a recipe that he approves of!  Although it's not a recipe handed down yet, I think it will be in the years to come.  This is an original recipe from  Fred Wix ~ The Gabby Gourmet!!

ALFREDO SAUCE
1/2 c. Butter (no substitutions)
1 Tbsp. Flour
2 Tbsp. Dry White Wine or Sherry Wine
1 1/2 c. Heavy Whipping Cream
1 c. Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
1/4 tsp. Freshly grated Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Freshly ground Pepper
Fresh Parsley, chopped

Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Stir in flour until smooth. Cook, stirring constantly for 1 minutes.  Whisk in the wine, then slowly whisk in the cream and continue whisking until sauce is smooth and well incorporated.

Heat until sauce is almost simmering, add parmesan cheese, nutmeg, and pepper.
Pour over prepared noodles, sprinkle with parsley, toss, and enjoy!!

This is a very tasty sauce for an italian pasta dish. I can say that it's going to be awesome especially that it's not an ordinary sauce.
