Directions

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Drain.

Stir 2 cups of the cream and the lemon juice in a heavy large skillet to blend. Add the butter and cook over medium heat just until the butter melts, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Add the pasta and toss. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of cream, and Parmesan to the cream sauce in the skillet. Add the lemon zest, nutmeg, salt, and white pepper. Toss the pasta mixture over low heat until the sauce thickens slightly, about 1 minute.

    I don't know who came up with the idea of putting nutmeg in this dish but it completely ruins it. The original recipe for Alfredo, made by the Italian chef who developed this dish for his pregnant wife who couldn't eat anything, NEVER had nutmeg in it. It was simply butter and cheese. PLEASE stop putting nutmeg in this. I always check with a restaurant if I order alfredo to make sure they don't add nutmeg. It was never in this dish and has no place in there. There......I feel better. Giada....you should know better.
