Ham and Peas Macaroni Alfredo

Avery, a two-year old in my day care, is the cutest little thing I have ever seen.  When her hair is in a ponytail, she looks just like “Boo”, the little girl from Monsters Inc.  Up until recently, Avery had been the youngest child in the group, but she inspired all of the older children to use their manners.  They applied it more frequently after seeing how she got praised for using hers.  Avery often says “thank you” when I change her diaper, when I hand her an item, when I serve her food.  In fact, when I fed her soup for lunch last week, she thanked me in ...more

Sunday Pasta: Fettuccine Alfredo (Fettuccine Triplo Burro)

Ok. There are few lessons buried in this recipe, which is probably the most common and the most bastardized of all pasta dishes in America. First, despite the Italian Facebook page dedicated to the non-existence of Fettuccine Alfredo in Italy, I’ve eaten it there at Alfredo, on Piazza Augusto Imperatore, in Rome. And it was good. That said, “which came first the tourists or the Fettuccine Alfredo?” is a fair question....more
