30-Minute Fettuccini Alfredo
Smoked salmon pasta recipe is creamy and delicious, made with easy Alfredo sauce from scratch. Perfect comfort food during the week!
To cook pasta, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions.
To make the Alfredo sauce, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add whipped cream cheese, garlic and garlic powder. Whisk until everything is combined and smooth, about 2 minutes.
In 2-cup measuring cup, combine heavy cream and milk and slowly stir into the cream cheese mixture, whisking constantly. Bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and continue to cook until desired thickness. (Note: the sauce thickens rather quickly. If the sauce thickened too much, add a bit of milk to thin it.)
Add pasta, smoked salmon, parsley and lemon juice. Toss everything until well combined. Serve immediately.
