If you make this mushroom fettuccine Alfredo recipe you will never order fettuccine Alfredo at a restaurant ever again. If you love creamy pasta recipes and mushrooms as much as I do well then you’re in for a real treat.
I caramelized the mushrooms and then simmered them in the Parmesan Alfredo sauce and it was perfection. I could’ve eaten the sauce on its own. The green onions definitely add a nice touch of freshness. This is a perfect date night dinner!
