Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Butter — Make sure the butter is at room temperature before melting it in the skillet to ensure a smooth and creamy sauce.
  • Parmesan cheese — Use freshly grated Parmesan cheese for the best flavor and texture. Avoid pre-packaged grated cheese as it may contain additives that affect the consistency of the sauce.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra burst of flavor, add a squeeze of lemon juice to the pasta just before serving.
  • Experiment with different herbs like dill or basil for a variation in taste.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, sprinkle some red pepper flakes over the finished dish.
  • To make it a heartier meal, add grilled chicken or sautéed vegetables to the pasta.
  • Don't overcook the pasta as it will continue to cook slightly when tossed with the sauce.

Serving advice

Serve the Parmesan Butter Fettuccine hot, straight from the skillet, to fully enjoy its creamy texture and flavors. Accompany it with a fresh salad or some crusty bread to complete the meal.

Presentation advice

Garnish the dish with a sprinkle of sumac and a drizzle of olive oil for an attractive presentation. Serve it on individual plates or in a large serving dish, allowing the vibrant colors of the pasta and herbs to shine through.
