Have a Family Restaurant Night Using this Great Recipe!

Do you love it when someone comes up with a reasonable facsimile (or is even "dead on!") for a favorite restaurant dish? We sure do.

And we have a dilly to share with you today. If you haven't already seen this recipe, you're in for a treat. A reader just sent into the cooking newsletter Alice writes for, the recipe for Olive Garden Fettucine Alfredo.

We've been trying to duplicate this recipe for years, with so-so success. Our reader says this recipe is floating around the Internet, so if you've already tried this, then let us know what you think. We're planning to cook it up this weekend and throw a "Family Restaurant Night" gathering. Heck with going OUT to eat. Let's stay home and enjoy this treat. We can compare notes on what we all think of this dish...

So if it's not already in your repertoire, add this to your arsenal of amazing family recipes. And lastly, here's to family dinner made easy, and really awesome as we include a restaurant favorite dish now and then!

OLIVE GARDEN FETTUCINE ALFREDO (serves 4, unless Alice is at your table, then it might serve 2 or 3!)

1/2 cup unsalted butter
dash of pepper
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup Italian shredded cheese (we're not sure what this is--do you know? If so, please tell us.)
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Put cream in saucepan; cook over medium heat (do NOT boil). Add pepper and butter; cook until butter melts. Add cheeses last; stir until thick and all cheese is melted. Pour over favorite pasta and enjoy!
