This is a modified version of the Fettucine Alfredo recipe in the new Joy of Cooking. It's very rich and I highly recommend using the best ingredients you can get.

  1. Boil water for pasta.
  2. In a large frying pan (a steep-sided wok is ideal) melt butter on very low heat.
  3. Start cooking pasta.
  4. In frying pan, combine half and half, Parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper with melted butter.
  5. Mix thoroughly and turn the heat up to medium (just hot enough to begin melting cheese).
  6. Pasta should be nearly done by now; drain and pour into frying pan with sauce ingredients.
  7. Toss together and serve immediately.
