It is important that you use a good quality fresh cheese and grate it yourself - do not use the ready grated cheese for this recipe. I serve this with crisp crunchy rolls & a fresh green salad Great lunch or dinner
- 1 lb fettuccine
- 1⁄2 lb fresh Italian cheese, you grate it (Fontinella, romano, locatella or parmesan)
- 4 tablespoons butter or 4 tablespoons margarine
- 1 cup light cream
- 3 garlic cloves (or more)
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- salt & pepper
- Cook the fettucini according to instructions.
- While the noodles are cooking melt the butter in a skillet and saute the garlic for 1 minute, add parsley and continue sauting for 4 additional minutes (use medium low heat you do not want to burn the butter etc).
- Add cream slowly and simmer 5 minutes.
- When the noodles are done drain well and return them to the pot.
- Pour the cream mixture over the noodles, add the cheese& toss.
- Serve piping hot.
Pure Comfort Food! This recipe is simple and delicious - absolutely a "more-ish" type of meal. I had bought some nice Provolone the last time I was in Belgium and shredded this for use in the recipe. Next time I will add a bit of homemade basil pesto to the mix. Thank you for participating in the photo swap, it was fun and I hope you enjoy your photos :)
oh my gosh, this was sooo good! I made it for a bunch of people and they all loved it. Some said it was restaurant quality. Others suggested adding shrimp, chicken, broccoli or tomatoes. Next time I just may do that! Thanks
