    Carol426's Note:

    I got this classic recipe from a friend, it's so delicious, creamy and decadent I had to share. The nutmeg really gives is a gourmet twist and separates it out from others.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    1 cup

    Units: US | Metric

    For the Sauce

    For the Pasta

    • fresh fettuccine, two packages (about 1#) or linguine, noodles- from the refrigerator section two packages (about 1#)
    • 4 quarts of water to boil pasta
    • 1 tablespoon salt (optional in water)

    To top the finished product

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat butter in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions and garlic in butter.
    2. 2
      Stir in whipping cream; heat to boiling.
    3. 3
      Stir in Parmesan cheese.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat. Simmer the sauce uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
    5. 5
      Heat water and 1 tablespoon salt to boiling in large kettle, add fresh fettuccine. Boil uncovered 2 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until al dente (tender but firm). Begin testing for doneness when fettuccine rise to the surface of water.
    6. 6
      Drain fettuccine. Do not rinse. Pour the sauce on the pasta and stir together, dish into servings and top with a little extra Parm and a pinch of nutmeg to make it pretty. Serve with pepper.
    7. 7
      I usually serve this with blackened chicken breast and broccoli to add some kind of nutritional value. :) NOTE: I've tried to make this recipe with 1/2 and 1/2 and it's not nearly as good -- sorry calorie counters. It's OK to splurge once in a while.

      I can't believe that no one has reviewed this before! It's really yummy. I made a generous 2-servings. It was simple and tasted great. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper. Made for Bargain Basement Tag.
