  • For a creamier sauce, add a splash of heavy cream to the skillet before tossing the pasta with the Parmesan cheese.
  • Experiment with different herbs like thyme or chives to add more depth of flavor.
  • If you prefer a stronger cheese flavor, add extra Parmesan to the dish.
  • Serve the Fettuccine burro e Parmigiano with a side of garlic bread for a complete meal.
