Fettuccine Alfredo or fettuccine al burro is a pasta dish made from fettuccine tossed with Parmesan cheese and butter.

In the early 1900s, Alfredo di Lelio, an Italian restaurant worker, created a dish for his pregnant wife who wasn't able to eat very much. He called it "pasta in bianco" — it was a deceptively simple recipe with just three ingredients: fresh fettuccine pasta, tossed with lots of butter and a lot of aged Parmigiano Reggiano.

In 1914, de Lelio opened his own restaurant in Rome and added the comforting dish to its menu. About a 15 years later, Hollywood stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks visited Alfredo's on their honeymoon and were wowed by the dish. They asked for the recipe and brought the dish back to the U.S., where it soon became a staple menu item at Italian restaurants across the country.
