What is Fettuccine Alfredo? 

The traditional fettuccine al burro pasta from Italy was made by just simply tossing the pasta with some butter and parmesan cheese.

The modern version fettuccine alfredo has some influence from the USA with heavy cream and other things like garlic and herbs added to it. In some cases even grilled chicken is added on top.
