  • Rating:

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces fettuccini pasta
  • ½ cup butter
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley

Directions

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add fettuccine pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

2. In a large skillet melt the butter and add the chopped garlic. Cook on low for about 5 minutes, stirring often, making sure not to burn the garlic.

3. Pour about a ¼ cup of the heavy cream into a small bowl. Add the egg yolk and beat together; put aside. Pour the remaining cream into the frying pan. Increase the heat to medium-high. As the cream starts to boil, mix rapidly using a whisk. Slowly add the cream/egg mixture. You do not want the egg to curdle. Continue whisking until well blended.

4. Add 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese and continue to mix the cream. Pour in the remaining Parmesan and the parsley, mix until smooth. Immediately remove from stove. Serve over cooked pasta.
