2 tbsp butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 lb fresh fettuccine
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
salt and pepper
fresh parsley sprigs, to garnish
1 – Put the butter and 5/8 cup of the cream in a large saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil over a medium heat. Reduce the heat and then simmer gently for about 1 1/2 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
2 – Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the fettuccine and olive oil and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until tender, but still firm to the bite. Drain the fettuccine and then pour the cream and butter sauce over the top.
3 – Toss the fettuccine in the sauce over a low heat until thoroughly coated.
4 – Add the remaining cream, the Parmesan cheese, and nutmeg to the fettuccine mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss thoroughly to coat while heating thorough.
5 – Transfer the fettuccine mixture to a warm serving plate and garnish with the fresh sprig of parsley. Serve immediately, with extra grated Parmesan cheese on the side.
