Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Pasta — Cook the pasta until al dente to ensure it has a slightly firm texture, which pairs well with the creamy sauce.
  • Parmesan cheese — Use freshly grated Parmesan for the best flavor and texture.
  • Butter — Opt for unsalted butter to have better control over the saltiness of the dish.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a Bosnian twist, you can add a pinch of paprika or chili flakes to give the dish a subtle kick.
  • If you prefer a creamier sauce, you can add a splash of heavy cream or milk while tossing the pasta with the cheese.
  • Feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices to personalize the flavors to your liking.
  • Serve the Fettuccine burro e Parmigiano with a side of fresh Bosnian salad for a complete meal.
  • Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated the next day, but the pasta may lose some of its creaminess.
