DIRECTIONS

  • Heat butter in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions and garlic in butter.
  • Stir in whipping cream; heat to boiling.
  • Stir in Parmesan cheese.
  • Reduce heat. Simmer the sauce uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
