* PLUS Cooking time: 12 minutes


  • 1 box fettuccine pasta
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter , cut into cubes
  • 1 cup 35% cream
  • 1 1/2 cups parmesan


  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. When water is boiling, stir in pasta. Cook, uncovered, according to package directions until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain in a large colander or sieve. Do not rinse. Return to warm pan and stir in butter.
  • Stir in cream and Parmesan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often until fettuccine is hot and evenly coated with sauce, about 2 minutes. Serve right away on warm serving plates with grindings of black pepper. Shreds of fresh basil, Italian parsley or snipped chives scattered over top are also very complementary.
