Frequently Asked Questions

My pasta is too thick, should I add water?

Yes, and better yet, save at least a cup of that pasta water just in case your sauce comes out too thick. While tossing the pasta with your creamy sauce, if it’s too thick for your liking, add a tablespoon of pasta water at a time until your desired consistency has been reached.

How can I make my fettuccine alfredo creamier?

The secret to every creamy alfredo sauce is in the Parmesan cheese. Now, if you want your alfredo sauce to be extra creamy, add more Parmesan cheese. Indulge in as much cheese as you want because no one’s going to police your cooking!
