      My family gobbled this up in no time,,, I guess you could say they loved it! It was a great side dish with Baked Parmesan Chicken... It will go well with many meat, poultry, and fish dishes I make, and we look forward to having it again soon!

      Yum! We choose to use fresh fettuccine and parmesan cheese, I also used a little extra cream but left it simmering a little longer. I think the key on making the flavour enhance to use ample freshly cracked black pepper. My husband thought it was great with a drizzle of truffle oil. My daughter loved it just as it is and I added a pinch of chilli flakes, just because I love a little kick. Served with organic broad beans and asparagus. We all enjoyed this recipe very much, thank you for posting mersaydees.

      I prepared this as a main dish, and found it to be lacking in enough flavor to carry a meal. However, it would be a fantastic side dish for Chicken Marsala, Chicken Piccata or Saltimbocca. I am going to store it for future use as a side and give it a second try later.
