3/4 pound fettuccine
2/3 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Cook the pasta according to package directions; drain.
Meanwhile, bring the cream, butter, pepper and salt to a boil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce the
heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce begins to thicken, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in 1/4 cup of the cheese until melted and smooth. Add the pasta and
parsley, tossing until the pasta is well coated. Serve at once sprinkled with the remaining cheese.
