recipe image


Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Serves 4-6

Level: Easy


16 oz heavy cream

8 oz Parmigiana Reggiano, grated (buy the real stuff)

4 oz butter

Fresh Nutmeg, grated (to taste, like 8 scrapes across a microplane)

Salt/Pepper to taste


  • This sauce can be prepared up to 30 minutes or so before you are ready to serve
  • In a medium sauce pan, heat up the the cream on med-hi heat.
  • Just before the cream starts to simmer, add the butter, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the butter is melted, add the cheese, stirring occasionally.
  • Grate in the nutmeg, and add the salt and pepper – A WORD OF CAUTION: ┬áTaste the sauce BEFORE adding salt; the cheese is ‘salty’, so you may not need as much salt as you think!
  • Set aside until ready to serve. ┬áToss noodles and sauce together and serve hot.
  • Buon Appetito!
