    Default Alfredo Revisited

    Just picked this one off RFR:

    > Lazy Alfredo sauce
    >
    > 2 10 ounce cans cream of chicken soup
    > 8 ounces. sour cream
    > 6-8 ounces. grated parmesan or romano cheese
    > season with garlic powder, salt, fresh ground pepper and dash nutmeg.
    > top with crumbled bacon


    I think I'll go back to bed. This day does not bode well.

    It's grounds for blowing one's brains out, which I may do after
    blowing chunks in the appropriate vessel.

    Heh! At first I saw that soup and thought that you, like me,
    gravitated toward soup when not feeling well. Then I saw more of
    the recipe, and the full meaning of your words dawned on me.... Yeah.

    ============================

    GACK! I hate what passes for Alfredo in 99.9% of all the restaurants,
    soup kitchens. supermarket freezers & shelves etc in the world.

    Real Alfredo sauce is made from butter, garlic, cream & parmesan (and
    a touch of the pasta water) period! That I will eat.

    Pastorio's Half-Assed Bastard Sauce

    pasta, sauces/dips

    1/2 cup milk
    3 tablespoons butter
    1 clove garlic
    more butter -- if desired
    2 tablespoons bacon fat -- if desired
    1 large egg
    1/4 cup parmesan cheese
    flat leaf parsley
    fresh ground black pepper

    Use some milk. Real milk. Or some skim crap (my how often that shows up in
    culinary discourse) with butter in it. The start of a cream coating for the
    pasta.

    For a pound of pasta, let's build a hypothetical dressing. 1/2 cup milk,
    three tablespoons butter and a garlic clove (mashed and very finely minced)
    heated until the butter melts and it comes to a boil. Stir to distribute
    the butter and to poach the garlic. Reduce to about 1/3 cup - the reduction
    will thicken a bit and have a richer mouthfeel. More butter wouldn't hurt
    it, nor would a couple tablespoons bacon fat.

    Meanwhile, break an egg into a large bowl and add 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
    and some fresh, flat leaf parsley. A good grating of black pepper. When the
    pasta is done, drain it. Dump the milk reduction into the bowl with the
    egg and whisk furiously to mix it all together. Dump the pasta in and toss
    quickly to full coat. Serve immediately. More cheese at table.

    Description: 'This is a half-assed approximation of a French Sauce Batard
    (q.v.) that itself is enormously flexible.'

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    NOTES : This is a satisfying, creamy dish that can be extended by dropping
    in some cooked, chopped bacon for a fake Carbonara or some veggies for a
    fake primavera or some leftover lobster, truffles and caviar if the queen
    pops in suddenly unannounced. It's a good base for adding lots of different
    things either as extenders or as flavorings. Or both.

    Garlic Shrimp cream and butter sauce

    none

    1 cup whipping cream
    6 tbsps Butter
    1 Cup freshly ground parmesan cheese
    1 pinch nutmeg
    1 sprinkle of fresh parsley
    4 toes garlic minced
    1/2 lb shrimp

    Right from the top you get your pasta water on and when the water starts to
    boil and you add the pasta.


    Before the pasta water comes back to a boil I melt the butter in a pan and
    cook the shrimp and garlic in the butter. when the shrimp turns pink I
    remove the shrimp. Also remove pan from heat so the garlic won't burn.
    Then when the pasta comes back to a boil I return the pan to the heat and
    add the whipping cream and cheese to the butter and garlic in the pan, stir well to combine and
    allow the
    sauce to simmer for a few moments to thicken.

    Drain the pasta and while it is still hot toss it well with the cream and
    butter sauce, the nutmeg, cheese , parsley and shrimp.

    I usually do the tossing in the empty pot the pasta cooked in.

    The amounts of garlic and shrimp are up to you...I just added them to an
    exsisting recipe.
    Fresh parmesan cheese is the key to this recipe...Don't use that crud from
    kraft in a green shaker.
    Use the freshest parmesan cheese you can find.
