As a university student I collected many simple, fast, and cheap versions of recipes. For most students the number one solution to hunger is pasta! Pasta is cheap, filling and easy. It is also a good basic source of protein and carbohydrates. All pasta of course requires a sauce – and a creamy Alfredo can never be a bad thing!
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/4 cup whipping cream (at room temperature)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cream butter (or margarine). Slowly beat in the cream to the butter a little at a time until well blended. If you add the cream all at once you will get a lumpy unappealing mess!
Now beat in the Parmesan cheese blending fully into the sauce. Leave at room temperature.
Cook up some pasta such as Fettucine (or egg-noodle nests!). When the pasta is done drain fully. Return to the pot (or to a proper serving dish!) and add the creamed mixture to the hot pasta. Toss until pasta is well coated. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper. Serve immediately!
To get your vegetables serve a green salad with the pasta!
