Prep Time
Cook Time
If you would like to cook something romantic for your sweetheart on Valentine's Day, consider cooking fettuccine alfredo. The Italian dish was invented by someone trying to get his pregnant wife to eat. This guy later brought the dish to America, where it was later enjoyed by celebrities like Sophia Loren and Jimmy Stewart.
