One of the greatest meals to be created is having its own national holiday February 7th! Get ready for National Fettuccine Alfredo Day by cooking up a dish for you and your loved one (or just make a trip to Olive Garden). There is a reason this beautiful Italian dish gets its own national holiday, from the creamy thick sauce, and the perfectly boiled noodles, to the garlic that fills the aroma of any room. Even the pickiest eaters can’t deny the mouth-watering goodness of fettuccine alfredo. 

However, it can be restricting for some people due to the recipe being full of gluten and dairy. This can be very frustrating because everyone wants to be able to enjoy their favorite meals. The traditional fettuccine alfredo, made in the early 1900s, features fettuccine noodles tossed with butter and parmesan cheese. Later on, people started to add cream, broccoli, garlic, and meats to the recipe. Some versions of Alfredo sauce are thickened with eggs or starch. Luckily, there are plenty of recipes online that give everyone the option to cook this meal to their wants and needs!
