It’s been a while I did not attend the South Arm Multicultural Community Kitchen. The reason is Minoo usually repeats the menu there. Since I attend the community kitchen in Gilmore Park Church, I do not need to attend the one in South Arm. However, there will be a change in the schedule of the community kitchens from now on. The Gilmore Park Church community kitchen will shift to Tuesday due to conflict of Minoo’s other program schedule. Hence, I will only be able to attend the South Arm community Kitchen and the Senior Kitchen from now on.
Today’s main course is Fettuccine with Mushroom Cream Cheese Alfredo Sauce. Minoo used whole wheat fettuccine for a healthy version.
- 2 tablespoons butter for frying mushroom
- 1 pack of mushroom, thinly sliced
- 1 8oz package of cream cheese
- 1/2 cup butter for making the sauce
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 6 oz grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil leaves or 1 teaspoon of dried ones
- salt and ground black pepper to taste

Nice idea using the cream cheese. I must try that 🙂
Hey, the kitchen buys their butter from Costco in the states too!
HISTORY OF FETTUCCINE ALL’ALFREDO AND OF ALFREDO DI LELIO CREATOR OF “FETTUCCINE ALL’ALFREDO”
With reference to “fettuccine all’Alfredo” we have the pleasure to tell you the history of our grandfather Alfredo Di Lelio, creator of this recipe in the world known.
Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant “Alfredo” in Rome nel 1914, after leaving his first restaurant run by his mother Angelina Rose Square (Piazza disappeared in 1910 following the construction of the Galleria Colonna / Sordi). In this local spread the fame, first to Rome and then in the world, of “fettuccine all’Alfredo”. In 1943, during the war, Di Lelio gave the local to his collaborators.
In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio decided to reopen with his son Armando (Alfredo II) his restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30 “Il Vero Alfredo”, which is now managed by his nephews Alfredo (same name of grandfather) and Ines (the same name of his grandmother, wife of Alfredo Di Lelio, who were dedicated to the noodles).
In conclusion, the local Piazza Augusto Imperatore is following the family tradition of Alfredo Di Lelio and his notes noodles (see also the site of “Il Vero Alfredo” http://www.alfredo-roma.it/)
Best regards Alfredo e Ines Di Lelio
