Pasta Alfredo
1 1b. fettuccine or pasta of choice
1/2 stick unsalted butter
1-1/2C cream
2/3C grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add salt and return to the boil.  Cook the pasta al dente.  Reserve ½ cup of the pasta cooking liquid and drain the pasta – do not rinse!!!

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a pan, add the cream and bring to a boil.  Boil 5 minutes to thicken.  Turn off the heat.  Add the pasta and half the cheese to the pan and stir in.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Add some of the pasta cooking liquid if the sauce is too thick.  Divide the pasta among plates and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
MAKES:  6 servings
