What is cavatappi? Cavatappi means "corkscrew" in Italian.

Fettucine alfredo is indeed Italian, although American love for butter and cheese has made it popular. I'm told the cream wasn't original and was made popular by none other than Marcella Hazan.

Variations! Make this cavatappi alfredo with pumpkin puree. Or add bacon. Mmmmm bacon.
