Fettuccini Slfredo

Thick noodle smoothed in a buttery, creamy and cheesy sauce served while very hot is a delight to your taste buds. Basically this is a white sauce mixed with a cream color pasta, what gives it the pretty look is the flecks of black pepper that is scattered through out the pasta.
