Olive Garden Asiago Fettuccine Alfredo Copycat MICROWAVE Recipe

 

 

Hi all,

As any of my close friends or family would tell you, it is plainly common knowledge that I am an absolute pasta/fettuccine alfredo FIEND. I have gotten to the point however, where about 9.999 times out of 10 any restaurant fettuccine alfredo might as well be milk over pasta. They are nearly always terrible, I swear. Especially at any restaurant that is not Italian, but I digress.

Recently though I finally, at long last, got to make my first trip to the Olive Garden and try their legendary Asiago Fettuccine Alfredo which was recommended to me by a friend – shout out to Lauren – and it was divine.

But who can be bothered to pay/make the trip out to a restaurant at every pasta craving – which for me is basically everyday. So, I decided to try my own mildly healthier variation of Kosher Eye’s recipe. It was amazing, I just had to share.

Enjoy:
