Thank you Alfredo di Lelio for bringing this cheesy, buttery goodness to life. I started to fall down the rabbit hole looking for a picture to add here, and I found this great quote on di Lelio's wiki article:
This act of mixing the butter and cheese through the noodles becomes quite a ceremony when performed by Alfredo in his tiny restaurant in Rome. As busy as Alfredo is with other duties, he manages to be at each table when the waiter arrives with the platter of fettuccine to be mixed by him. As a violinist plays inspiring music, Alfredo performs the sacred ceremony with a fork and spoon of solid gold. Alfredo does not cook noodles. He does not make noodles. He achieves them.

Usually I eat through breakfast/lunch/dinner sort of mindlessly, eating while multitasking, but it's good to remember to savor the food, or go out and enjoy the whole dining experience.
I had no idea about today's "holiday", but what's funny is that yesterday I bought some Alfredo Pasta Sides when I was at the store.
I love Fettuccine Alfredo!! With Broccoli and Chicken!
And it's relative: Pasta Primavera
