There are several ways you could choose to reheat your fettuccine alfredo from Maggiano’s. The ideal option depends on your needs and what kitten appliances you have at your disposal.
Reheating fettuccine alfredo isn’t very difficult, but there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Especially if you want it to actually taste and feel like freshly cooked, creamy and delicious pasta.
The best way to reheat Maggiano’s fettuccine alfredo is by using the stove top. Saute the pasta and sauce in a pan with 4oz of water for 6-8 minutes on medium heat, stirring halfway through the cook.
But if you’d rather use a different method, there are other options.
How To Reheat Maggiano’s Fettuccine Alfredo
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit
- Pour your pasta into an oven safe baking dish
- Add about 1 tbsp of water to the dish, this will help the pasta stay nice and moist in the oven. You can add more water depending on how much pasta you’re making.
- Cover the dish with aluminum foil, tightly. This will help trap the steam in the dish. The steam will help the pasta heat more evenly and returns some freshness to it.
- Reheat the pasta in 2 10-minute cycles. Heat it first for 10 minutes in the oven, then remove it to give it a thorough stir. This will help disperse the heat throughout the pasta and ensure more even heating. Pop the dish back into the oven for another 10 minutes.
- The pasta should be finished heating by now, but if it’s not give it another 3-5 minutes
- Remove from the oven and serve hot
The microwave is the fastest and most convenient way to reheat Maggiano’s fettuccine alfredo pasta. However, you’ll be trading a bit of quality for such convenience. You’ll need to be careful with this method also, because the microwave may dry out your pasta.
- Place the pasta in a microwave-safe bowl or container
- Add a tablespoon of water and stir
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or the container lid. If using the plastic wrap, poke a few holes in it to allow the steam to escape. If you don’t it could “explode” and make a mess of your microwave
- Blast your pasta in 1 minute intervals, stirring after each 60 second interval passes. Add extra water if you want the sauce to be a bit creamier, or if you think it’s drying out too much
- Replace the plastic wrap and return the bowl to the microwave
- Heat for another 60 seconds. Keep heating in 60 second intervals until fully heated through
- Remove from the microwave and serve
This is the best way to reheat your Maggiano’s pasta, suggested by the website themselves.
- Place a saucepan on a burner set to high heat
- Add a bit of water to the pan
- Heat the alfredo to boiling, stirring occasionally
- Once it reaches a boil, reduce heat to medium and stir continuously to prevent the noodles from sticking on the bottom. The sauce will thicken and begin to take on a creamy texture, moreso if you added a bit more water
- Once the pasta is thoroughly heated, you can remove it from the stove
- Serve immediately
As you can see, it’s pretty easy to reheat Maggiano’s pasta, including the fettuccine alfredo. While the stove top method is the best, you have more options than that if you’re pressed for time or want a more convenient method that doesn’t require so much babysitting.
It’s entirely possible to enjoy Maggiano’s fettuccine alfredo the next day, and have it taste just as good as it would have been fresh out of the restaurant.
