Authentic Fettuccine Alfredo

1 pound Fettuccine noodles, cooked al dente (according to package instructions)
12 tablespoons butter
2 cups heavy cream
1½ cups Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Optional: 1 tablespoon garlic, minced

  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan, but do not bring it to boil. This will cause it to separate.
  2. Slowly add the cream. whisk together for about a minute to fully combine the cream and butter. Add the garlic, if you’re using it.
  3. Bring to a simmer, stirring often, and allow to simmer for just one minute. The sauce will be just slightly thicker.
  4. Remove sauce from heat and add grated Parmesan and hot cooked noodles. Stir together until the sauce is creamy and the noodles are covered. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
