Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a saute pan over low heat. Add fresh, minced garlic and lightly brown. Careful not to burn the butter! Add heavy cream and cook approximately 4-6 minutes over medium heat, letting sauce reduce until it coats the back of a spoon. Add salt and pepper to taste, then add fresh, minced jalapeno and remove from heat.
  2. As you are making the sauce, boil 4 quarts of water. Add fresh pasta to boiling water and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes. Drain water, add pasta to saute pan with jalapeno cream sauce and mix together. Plate pasta and sauce in pasta bowls and garnish with fresh pico de gallo and/or a sprig of fresh cilantro. Serve immediately. Makes about 3-4 servings.

This is a good and easy recipe. Used half and half and it still turned out great. Husband loved it over red chili fettuccine with tilipia. Thanks
