It’s about time we start planning romantic Dinner for Two meals for Valentine’s Day. I mean, we could eat nothing but conversation heart ice cream, beer brownies, and candy cookies. But I think easy, creamy pasta would be a good appetizer, no?
One small caveat about this decadent pasta recipe: you must eat it immediately. I don’t think that’s going to be a problem, but I thought I’d throw it out there, just in case. If you’re one of those amazing people that preps meals ahead of time, I still think you can swing this–just make it for dinner on prep night. And when you’re done, can you come to my house and teach me how to meal prep, please? I’m constantly staring at the clock at 6pm with zero plans for dinner. On those nights, we usually have cupcakes and popcorn for dinner. SO classy.
But not anymore! With this quick, easy, creamy pasta for dinner in my arsenal, it’s going to be my new rescue dinner. It also happens to be fancy enough for a romantic dinner for two for Valentine’s Day. I love it when that happens!
This fettuccine alfredo serves two, because that’s kinda what I do around these parts, but you can scale it up. I’ve scaled it up three times and served it at a dinner party for 6 with sliced steak. And my party attendees wanted to move in with me. It’s that good.
I’m going to figure out every which way you can get this pasta in your face. Because life is too short to live without simple, creamy pasta. Oh, maybe you’re doing your New Year’s resolution thing and you’re eating healthy. Well, save this for a Valentine’s Day dinner for two. Or, go ahead and count the peas as a health food and enjoy this pasta. You deserve it.
Don’t be intimidated by the name of this dish–fettuccine Alfredo sounds like something only a restaurant can make for you, but stay with me! Read the instructions below–you can totally do this!
I made this recipe for Food Fanatic.
