Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo With Mushrooms Recipe

Updated: Mar 3


This recipe is the reason why we never eat fast-food fettuccine alfredo. Once you try it, you'll never want to order pasta outside again.


A lot of fettuccine recipes call for a one pot alfredo and mushroom combination. After several years of developing this recipe, we find that a one pot method just doesn't compare to cooking everything separate, only to add it all together at the end.


Cooking everything in one pot all at once can sometimes cause some of our ingredients to become overcooked. Don't get me wrong, sometimes a one pot pasta is all you need for that quick and delicious meal during the week.


But SAVE this recipe for a weekend at home with the family when you have a little extra time in the kitchen, we promise you...they will love you even more than they did before.



Alfredo Sauce Ingredients:

½ Cup Butter

2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream

2-3 Teaspoons Garlic Minced

½ Teaspoon Italian Seasoning

½ Teaspoon Salt

¼ Teaspoon Pepper

2 Cups Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese



Mushroom Ingredients:

1 Cup of Cremini Mushrooms

1 Tablespoon of Minced Garlic

½ Teaspoon Italian Seasoning

½ Teaspoon Salt

¼ Teaspoon Black Pepper

¼ Teaspoon Chili Flakes (optional)

How To Make Alfredo Sauce From Scratch:


Step One

The first step to making the creamiest fettuccine alfredo and mushrooms is to prepare your alfredo sauce first. Start by melting your butter in a large saucepan, try not to burn or boil your butter. Add your cream to your butter mixture.



Step Two

Add your seasoning and garlic to your butter and cream mixture and begin to whisk together. Make sure your garlic is cooked within the whisking process.


Step Three

Add your freshly grated parmesan cheese and stir until completely melted. Your alfredo sauce should have a smooth-like consistency.


Note: Parmesan will thicken the sauce. If your sauce is a little runny, put it back onto the stove and let it stand on low heat for about 2-3 minutes.


Start Boiling Your Pasta:

Boil your pasta on high heat for 8-12 minutes. We used fettuccine, but feel free to switch up the pasta as to your liking.


Tip: Try not to overcook your pasta. Make it a little al dente - you'll be adding your fettuccine to a hot alfredo sauce (which can continue to cook the pasta).



How To Prepare And Cook Your Mushrooms:

This is one of the very last steps when it comes to making the creamiest fettuccine alfredo. For this recipe we used cremini mushrooms.


Step One

Fill a large bowl of water and place your mushrooms in the bowl. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes. This allows the dirt and debris from your mushroom to settle at the bottom of the bowl. Rinse mushrooms thoroughly and let it sit for about 5 minutes to dry.


Step Two

Add two tablespoons of butter medium sized skillet and set your stove to a med-low heat. Allow for the butter to melt and heat up.


Step Three

Add one tablespoon of minced garlic and allow it to submerge into the hot butter.



Step Four

Next add one your mushrooms to your pan. Season with salt, pepper, a dash of oregano and some chili flakes for a extra little kick.


Step Five

Turn up the heat to medium-high and roast your mushrooms for about 20 minutes, constantly stirring your mushrooms. This helps avoid burning and overcooking your mushrooms.


Step Six

Once your mushrooms are cooked let it sit for about 1-2 minutes.



Ready To Serve:

Take your al dente noodles and slowly begin to toss into your alfredo sauce. Once all of your pasta is coated in your homemade alfredo sauce, add it to the bowl or plate of your choice.


Add your cremini mushrooms overtop and add a few pieces of fresh oregano overtop as garnish.


Take your freshly grated parmesan and sprinkle lightly overtop before serving and enjoy!
