Organic Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

March 4, 2008 · 32 comments

Here is a huge list of meatless/vegetarian/Lenten meal ideas. For today though, my friend, Lyn, gave me this organic Fettuccine Alfredo recipe that can be made meatless or with chicken. Last night we served it with orange slices and fermented pickles – read more about those in the comment section at Lynn’s guest interview (different Lynn).

***By the way, to make this a healthy fast food dish (find more ideas at that link), just make the alfredo sauce below and serve it over hot pasta.  Easy!


  • Start cooking 1 # of organic whole-wheat spaghetti or fettuccine noodles
  • Butter a 9×13-baking dish (no Teflon!)
  • Omit the following for a meatless meal: cut 2-3 boneless chicken breasts into chunks and place around the bottom of the pan. (Use chicken from an all-natural farm – no hormones, pasture-raised, and not fed junk.)
  • You can also add some veggies on top of the chicken if you’d like: red or green peppers, asparagus, green beans, summer squash, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, etc. (If you add both veggies and chicken, decrease the amount of pasta a little or it won’t all fit into a 9×13.)
  • Make the white / alfredo sauce:

    • Melt 1 stick/1/2 c. of organic butter in a medium saucepan, saute a few cloves of fresh garlic (however many you’d like, I like a lot), add 8 T. flour and whisk until smooth. Add 1 t. sea salt & pepper to your taste preference and cook on very low heat for 3 minutes.
    • Add 3 3/4 milk or cream (or I usually use a combination) while stirring with a whisk – for extra nutrition I also usually substitute some homemade chicken stock for part of the milk or cream.
    • Add another 1/4 c. of softened butter, bring to gentle boil, and cook 3-5 minutes.
    • At this point I add whatever I feel like: onion powder, Italian seasonings, more sea salt & pepper if needed, parsley.
    • Remove from heat, stir in 2/3 c. fresh parmesan cheese until melted.
  • Drain pasta and mix it with the sauce, then spread it all over the chicken.
  • Bake at 350 for 55 minutes, and then I sprinkle on some shredded mozzarella cheese and bake another 15 minutes or so.

I’d love to hear if you like it!

    Umm… my butter doesn’t come in sticks.
    What measurement would you say you used? How many Tbsps?


    2 KitchenKop February 19, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    1 stick = 8 Tablespoons. :)

    A stick of butter is 1/2 cup or quarter pound.

    Do you put the chicken in the pan raw?


    5 KitchenKop April 20, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    Hi Crystal,

    Yes, and then after 55 minutes it’s cooked perfectly and not dry. :)

    Yes it did turn out perfectly! This was such a yummy dish, I had never made homemade fettuccine before. Everyone loved it. I will def be making this again. Thanks (:

    sure looks good

    I made this tonight using DeBoles gluten free penne pasta, Horizon organics milk, organic butter, free range/no antibiotic etc chicken, Simply Organic all purpose seasoning, organic minced garlic, fresh Parmesan.

    I cubed the chicken up/cooked on the stove in the skillet with Simply Organic all purpose seasoning and sea salt until it was done and used the same skillet to make the white sauce (after removing the chicken). Perfect! This is the first alfredo sauce that I’ve actually succeeded at. Thanks SO much!

    Yum! I’m so glad it worked well for you. :)

    Also, I didn’t have a baking pan that size so I used a glass pie pan and buttered it up really good.

    do you have a grain-free substitute for the flour? i’d love to make the alfredo sauce, but i’m still on a grain free diet


    12 KitchenKop October 31, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    I’m not sure about that, so I’ll post this question on Facebook – check back and hopefully we’ll get some helpful comments! :)

    The flour is a thickener so you can use corn starch or for a little different flavour use cocoanut flour.

    Would you not just use arrowroot powder? :)


    15 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    I haven’t tried arrowroot for alfredo sauce, but arrowroot was my first thought. I have used it for other sauces before and it usually turns out well.


    16 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Try white rice flour it works great for gravy, i bet it would work for this as well!


    17 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    I’ve only made alfredo without flour/thickener: What is she/he using for noodles?


    18 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    This website says to use 1 Tbsp. arrowroot for every 2 Tbsp. flour in a recipe.


    19 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    coconut flour


    20 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    I’ve used chickpea flour as a replacement for wheat in many sauces and no one can tell the difference.


    21 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    I always make Alfredo with no grains anyway. 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup cream, and 3/4 cup grated parmesan. Salt as neeeded. You melt the butter and cream together over low heat and slowly stir in the grated parmesan. I know from experience that it will form a terrible clump if you just dump it in.

    Lots of cream, butter and grated cheese…NEVER any flour


    23 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    My mom and I used to make home made fettuccine too…so good!!


    24 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    right. just cream, butter and parmesan.


    25 %kelly the kitchen kop% via Facebook October 31, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Great idea to just use cream butter and parm!!! You guys are awesome!

    zucchini (courgette) ribbons for fettaccini and all grain free
