Mock Olive Garden Fettuccine Alfredo

I love to eat at the Olive Garden. We don't hardly ever go there because the closest one is over 100 miles away, but one of my favorite dishes to eat when I DO go there is the "Fettuccine Alfredo". Its definatly NOT something that you dine on when dieting (or you just live in a fantasy world and pretend that its low calorie, like I do)...because its packed full of fat and ALL the good stuff! I found this recipe years ago, I wished I could remember where so that I could give the person credit...but I don't have any idea where I got it, so I apologize for that. BUT just know that there is someone out there that created this yummy recipe and we all get to enjoy it! I like to serve this with Mock Olive Garden Salad and my homemade breadsticks...all of which are posted on our recipe blog today. When I sit down to eat this yummy meal, I just need a waiter and then I would feel like I was dinning out at the Olive Garden, yes it really is THAT GOOD!

Mock Olive Garden Fettuccine Alfredo

1 c. butter
1 clove garlic, minced
4 c. heavy cream
1 t. black pepper
1 c. grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 c. grated mozzarella cheese

Cooked shrimp OR cooked, diced chicken (I like to grill the chicken and use it)
Fettuccine noodles, prepared according to directions on the box

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic, cream and pepper and bring to a slow simmer; stirring often. Add the Parmesan cheese and simmer the sauce for 7-8 minutes or until the sauce is smooth and thick, make sure you stir continually or it will scorch. Add Mozzarella cheese and keep stirring until smooth. Place prepared Fettuccine noodles and meat onto a serving dish or individual serving plates and top with sauce....Now just sit back and relish in your delicious "dine out" food...maybe if your lucky your own personal "waiter" will even serve you!
