Carla Makes BA's Best Fettuccine Alfredo | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

Publicado em 24 Mar 2018
Real alfredo should never (never!) include cream; the silky sauce is the result of an emulsion between the grated cheese, melted butter, and starchy pasta water. This is part of BA's Best, a collection of our essential recipes.

  • Made this sauce for some tortellini and it was amazing, all the creamy cheese flavor without the heaviness of cream is beautiful. I'll never buy alfredo sauce again.

  • What's the book she's holding at the beginning of the video?

  • If it works the way she does it awesome.But I love that heavy Cream tho."To each their own"

  • Where's the butter ?!

  • proper Italian or not, I'm willing to bet my recipe destroys this one in flavor.

  • The real Italians at the restaurant who invented the dish and is the namesake of their establishment, make the sauce in the serving dish tableside.

  • Nah, gimme that cream please.

  • I saw it’s papardelle in the package

  • Looks like a soupy, watery mess.

  • Title says “the BEST fettuccini Alfredo” Uses Pappardelle. You messed up from the get go sweetheart

  • Mac and cheese. :)

  • Fettuccine or Pappardelle ?

  • Actually expected worse from americans cooking italian stuff. Its almost legit. THANK GOD SHE DIDNT ADD CREAM!

  • Fake. Is not like that.

  • Those are not fettuccine...those are pappardelle! Fettuccine are 1/3 thinner

  • How can she consider herself italian... She pronounce it fettuccini when it's fettuccine... But then she uses Pappardelle -_- Cazzo...

  • I'm not a huge fan of Fettuccine noodles, so I love using angel hair noodles instead.

  • ❤ this... I was also thinking...how would this taste with the black garlic noodles Brad made? Would the garlic ruin it?

  • the cheese boy can like, get it

  • It looks like calcio e pepe without the pepper (and with some butter) xd

  • Finally. Fettuccine Alfredo I like my grandma used to make, I hate the cream base one. I hate all cream based dishes

  • This is one of my favorites, I so want to try making it. She always does such a great job explaining things.

  • carla you got a begrudging almost nod of approval on Italia Squisita for this. basically they didn't detest it.

    • It's one of the best compliments they have ever given in one of their recipe critiques 😂

    • +Samir Hazlehurst I can image that😂😂 I'll watch it!!

    • +gnamorfra the staff from the restaurant where it was invented reviewed the internet's most popular alfredo videos. this episode was particularly brutal

    • Ahahah have they made a video about it?

  • Smaaaaaart.

  • As far as Alfredo’s go, that’s pretty bad

  • But I want the cream

  • That looks so bland

  • Gotta make this! Have always used cream. No longer 🙌🏽

  • A girl that knows how to cook! I'm in love!!😚

  • She just made watery butter pasta & added cheese and called that Alfredo ??!

  • After watching this I went out and got the ingredients and made some. I loved it!

  • Hi Carla fettuccine

  • damn I never put that much salt in the boiling water :o interesting !

  • I'm sick w the flu right now so I'm watching a bunch of BA vids and dreaming of when I can actually eat something and keep it down. The second I feel better I'm making this simple recipe!

  • Great, fast dish. Looks yummy, I'll give it a try. But I was so distracted by the the girl with pink hair and the girl with the afro prepping food!! All I could think about was pink and curly hair falling into the food. I was legit stressing out during the video lol. Like I get the hipster style is back in or whatever, but put your hair up!!! I thought Bon Appetit's standards would be much higher!!! :/

  • is the pasta egg or just flour pasta?

  • So I'm not insane and she really had her name changed, right?

  • Wow this looks delicious!

  • No spices?

  • Two recently licked, thumbs up! This is an easy, tasty dish.

  • This is excellent, no cream , who knew, thank you Carla..I will try it....

  • You got yourself a subscriber

  • for the love of god, dont put that much salt PLEASE !

  • Looks simple and yummy!

  • Why the hell not put cream, i like that type of stuff

  • cArLa i put a quarter cup of salt in my pasta water LiKe YoU sAiD and my pasta doesn't even taste like cheese anymore all i taste is salt why did you do this to me

  • Oh, my. It’s the fourth or fifth time I see an amazing Italian dish prepared surprisingly well, just to ruin everything at the end adding salt to the cooked pasta. An Italian grandma dies everytime you do this. You should feel guilty about it.

  • I love this woman

  • This recipe is so stupid! I wasted so much food! The cheese just stuck together! HORRIBLE! DO NOT TRY THIS! Ruined my evening😡

  • My cheese always clumps after putting it in... Am I just not getting it fine enough??

  • jeez, do you really need a recipe to be making pasta with a little bit of cheese on top? like seriously? Also, Alfredo sauce is NOT Italian.

  • Looks like noodles dipped in cheesy butter water... No thanks fam. Issa gottu hav e de creamy sosss 4 me uh. Ciao bella..

  • this aint it

  • this is the kind of alfredo i'd eat. I can't stand the cream sauce that most alfredo is.

  • lost me at packaged noodles. However I do use pre-made noodles for spaghetti and other dishes like ziti, it's the thought that fettuccine (and lasagna) noodles should be held to a higher standard. I know, I'm weird right.? Love yer channel.

    • you wouldn't use fresh pasta for a roman pasta dish you jackass

  • I’m just obsessed with Carla

  • "Noodles." Ha! I was raised in an Italian American family (grandma born on Mulberry St.) and once made the mistake of referring to pasta as "noodles" during a Sunday dinner and was harangued by an uncle for years afterwards, "It's pasta, stunade!"

  • Yeah, that's no replacement for a cream based sauce. Look good though.

  • Just made this and it's good but my lord mine was salty. I think where I went wrong was using regular butter (didn't have any unsalted on hand) and I think I used too much cheese. While I would normally say there's no such thing, when it comes to a cheese with such a strong flavour like parm you can definitely overdo it. I would definitely recommend using unsalted butter as the recipe says and also measuring out out 3/4 of grated parm and then blending it instead of taking a massive amount of parm and blending it down to 3/4 cup like I did haha. Happy cooking everyone!

  • You guys, even if you make it and the cheese clumps a little bit... ITS STILL SO FRICKIN GOOD!!! Took me 15 minutes, it was so easy and delicious to make. My cheese clumped up a bit but it was incredible and creamy and just... ughhhhh just make it guys

  • I hate the really thick alfredo sauce

  • Just made this at home for the first time! I love your videos, and thanks for teaching me how to be a better cook!

  • I made it. Good texture but too salty. Diluted it by adding unsalted chicken scraps from the fridge

  • Whenever I make this recipe I always just end up with a watery skillet with clumps of cheese in it. Advice?

  • PLEASE STOP EATING ALFREDO SAUCE!!!!!!!! IT DOESN' T EXISTS REALLY, IT' S NOT AN ITALIAN DISH SUCH AS SPAGHETTI WITH MEATBALLS. WHY ARE YUO ROWNING PASTA, THAT CAN BE MUCH BETTER THAN THAT. PLEASE COME TO ITALY AND TASTE WHAT REAL PASTA IS.

    • +GivenPaladin809 What's pasta in bianco then?

    • IT'S REAL NAME IS "PASTA BURRO E PARMIGIANO". It's basically only parmesan and butter.

  • Thank you, it seems similar to cacio e pepe except without the pepe?

    • +Jenni Valentine thank you for you r reply!!

    • pretty much. And you'd use pecorino romano for cacio e pepe obviously.

  • Pasta al burro col grana, we use to eat it, when we are sick, in Italy!

  • Wheres the garlic tho

  • So I love this channel and all the great content but.. Alfredo pasta is not Italian 😅 and those aren't fettuccine, those right there are pappardelle...but still i love you

  • I've been told when your boiling pasta the water should taste like the ocean. I LOVE ALFREDO SAUCE. Thank you for this.

  • I don’t know if I did this wrong but when I did it . It turned out bad !

  • Honestly this looks bland as hell. Use the cream it taste 10Xs better. As long as you're not eating this meal every day you'll be fine. Sick of everyone trying to be healthy. Live your life to the fattest!

    • I don't understand any of this. How is lots of butter and cheese being healthy and how do you make something with parmigiano reggiano bland?

  • I prefer cream in my alfredo, or at least whole milk. The way she made it keeps it runny and it tastes more like pepper, less like cream. I love my alfredo very thick and cheesy with a lot of garlic. It’s my favorite food. The Old Italian style just doesn’t taste as rich to me. It’s kind of like American pizza versus Italian pizza, the Italian was made first and is healthier- but the American is richer and tastes better. I’ve been to Italy, and I work in an Italian restaurant, so I know the difference. Though authentic Italian food is fabulous! But I prefer American style pizza and alfredo for sure lol and plus today’s Italians don’t do alfredo- they simply do “cheese” sauces if they are going that direction

  • sorry, thats pappardelle isn't it? :)

  • Some tips on temperature control would be nice...

  • Fettuccine Alfredo is not a real recipe,It doesnt exist

  • i live less than 2h away from northern italy, meaning we all eat a lot of italian food round here. my mom used to work as a cook in a restaurant in italy and i've never had anyone make or even mention pasta alfredo until i've stumbled upon a recipe on the internet years ago. the most similar thing to this that i've had we call pasta in bianco.

  • I'm gonna try it your way tonight. It does look good

  • I would still use a bechamel to create sauce and some garlic.

  • Made this today and added a touch of basil on top. So great. Going to be a regular lunch for me.

  • Ma è pasta in bianco hahahaha

  • Ma se le sono inventate le fettuccine Alfredo? Mai sentite prima...

  • THUMBS DOWN with the no cream. Give me a break.

  • Tried this, failed miserably, 100% confident that it’s not your fault 😂 will try again next week

  • im hungry

  • It is good that she teach how to make these "Fettuccine Alfero" for all the Americans out there, because in Italy there is nothing like that, if you ask in an Italian restaurant in Italy to eat this thing, the answer would be, Whaaaat!!!

  • After watching this video and the shrimp scampi video, I decided to tackle the recipe tonight, running to the store to grab all of the mentioned ingredients with the addition of some sauteed shrimp. It all turned out fantastic but there was a little "gathering of cheese" once I left the sauce unattended to drain the pasta. After constant stirring over medium low heat I was able to get it to emulsify into the sauce and coat the noodles without looking like globs of string cheese. The end result was delicious, but not very exciting. Perhaps some garlic and fresh parsley would bring a couple more interesting elements? Back to the test kitchen to find out...

  • *Carla* Anything in a can you're not going to use for this. *America* Hold my beer.

  • Looks Yummylicious!!☺️😋What kind of Noodles or what kind of Pasta were you using!! They looked very Broad!! Thsnk You for letting us know & for your wonderful demonstration! 🙌🙌🙌❤️❤️❤️😋☺️🍽

  • I know a person who likes cats named Alfredo

  • Carla Thanks .

  • I love Carla 😍❤

  • ♥️♥️♥️

  • I think this would work really well with a touch of nutmeg...

  • I tried it. I got buttered noodles with melted cheese curds. Gdi I'm going to live off postmates until I dieeeeee

  • Love ya Carla. What type of noodles? What book? Thanks. BYW made your Smash Burgers. OMG.

  • Alfreda sauce without cream seems... wrong. But I will trust Carla because she’s actually Italian so... she would know.

  • The fun thing is that in Italy we eat pasta with butter and parmigiano when we are sick.

  • Italian American= Native Italian. The dish comes from Italian immigrants that moved too America, so yeah, it’s Italian enough

  • I think I did this recipe wrong because this not good... maybe I just really creamy rich sauces but this was not tasty at all. I love bon appetit! But I don’t think this recipe was that great
