Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Parmesan cheese — Use freshly grated Parmesan for the best flavor and texture.
  • Heavy cream — Make sure to use full-fat heavy cream to achieve a rich and creamy sauce.
  • Fettuccine pasta — Cook the pasta until al dente to ensure it has a slight bite and doesn't become mushy in the sauce.
  • Butter — Use unsalted butter to have better control over the saltiness of the dish.
  • Chopped parsley — Add the parsley just before serving to add a fresh and vibrant touch to the dish.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra burst of flavor, add a pinch of nutmeg to the sauce.
  • If the sauce becomes too thick, you can thin it out by adding a splash of pasta cooking water.
  • Feel free to add cooked chicken, shrimp, or vegetables to make it a heartier meal.
  • Serve with a side of garlic bread for a complete fast food experience.
  • Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated the next day, but the sauce may thicken further, so add a splash of cream when reheating if needed.

Serving advice

Serve the Fettuccine Burro e Parmigiano in shallow bowls or on plates, garnished with additional grated Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper. Pair it with a side of garlic bread and a crisp green salad for a satisfying fast food meal.
