Serves:

makes 3 cups of sauce, should serve 4

Prep:

25 Min

Ingredients

1 box
fettuccine pasta, prepared el dente
2 clove
garlic, minced
3 c
heavy cream
1 c
shredded parmesan cheese
2 tsp
paprika, i use smoked
1 1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
fresh ground pepper, or whatever pepper you use
pinch of nutmeg
additional parmesan cheese for garnish
3 - 4
scallion, sliced , including green part ( optional) for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare pasta according to package directions
2
While pasta is cooking; in a medium saucepan, on medium heat; saute the garlic in a tablespoon of oil, just long enough to extract flavor, do not burn.
3
Add the 3 cups of cream, bring to a simmer, add the paprika, nutmeg, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese, stirring constantly as so not to scorch.

Continue simmering until sauce starts to thicken ( about 10 - 15 minutes ). It may seem too thin, but will thicken as it starts to cool down. If you want it thicker just add some more Parmesan.
4
When pasta is finished cooking, drain well. I add a small amount of olive oil and toss.

Plate your pasta; ladle sauce over the pasta, sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese and scallions..


**I don't rinse my pasta, the sauce will adhere better if not rinsed.

You can add chicken, mushrooms, peppers, whatever you like..we were just in the mood for simple..
