  • 1 pound fettuccine pasta
  • 1/4 cup butter half a stick
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Romano cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring a pot of water to boil, liberally salt the water and add pasta. Cook according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter over medium heat in a pan large enough to fit the pasta once cooked. Add the garlic and cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the pasta to the pan. Pour cream and cheese over the pasta. Toss to completely coat the pasta. Cook 2-3 minutes. Add the parsley. Reduce heat to low, let pasta stand 5 minutes until sauce thickens. Toss just before serving. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
