Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Butter — Be careful not to burn the butter while browning it. Keep an eye on the skillet and stir occasionally to ensure even browning.
  • Parmesan cheese — Use freshly grated Parmesan for the best flavor and texture. Avoid pre-packaged grated cheese, as it may not melt as smoothly.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra touch of elegance, garnish the dish with edible flowers or microgreens.
  • Experiment with different types of freshly ground pepper, such as white or pink peppercorns, to add a unique flavor profile.
  • If you prefer a lighter version, you can use half the amount of butter and substitute it with olive oil.
  • To make it more indulgent, add a splash of heavy cream to the sauce for extra richness.
  • Serve the fettuccine immediately after tossing with the sauce to ensure the best texture.

Serving advice

Serve the Fettuccine Burro e Parmigiano as a main course accompanied by a simple arugula salad dressed with lemon vinaigrette. Pair it with a crisp white wine, such as a Sauvignon Blanc, to complement the flavors.

Presentation advice

Create an elegant presentation by twirling the fettuccine into nests and placing them on the center of each plate. Sprinkle some extra Parmesan cheese on top and garnish with a sprig of fresh parsley.
