Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettuccine Alfredo

1 lb. fettuccine pasta
1/4 lb. butter, cut into 8 parts
Fresh-ground pepper, to taste
1 C. half-&-half
1/4 lb. grated Parmesan cheese

Cook noodles as package directs. Drain. Place in a dry pan.

Gently heat the noodles. Toss them, gently, while adding the butter, & grinding the pepper over them.

Add the half-&-half and allow to heat thoroughly, tossing once or twice, until most of the half-&-half has been absorbed.

Add the cheese. Heat another 2 or 3 minutes, still tossing gently, until the noodles are evenly coated with the melted cheese. Serve immediately on warmed plates.

Variation: Fettuccine alla Romana
Add 1 C. fresh-cooked green peas and 1/2 C. prosciutto (or other thin-shredded ham) along with the cheese.
