This recipe is a variation of a similar Italian one that I enhanced to my taste over the years from being in North Carolina.

  • 1/2 pkg
    barilla fettucine pasta
  • 1/2 c
    salted butter
  • 1/4 c
    fresh grated asiago cheese
  • 1/4 c
    parmesan cheese

  • 1/2 c
    half and half
  • 1 tsp
    white pepper

How To Make

  • 1
    Cook pasta according to the direction. I always cook mine all dente... In the meanwhile in a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Gradually add the cream cheese, half and half and parmesan cheese stirring slowly until blended.
  • 2
    Continue heating the sauce stirring constantly (I use a whisk)just until it reaches boiling point.
  • 3
    Remove from heat and add salt and pepper.
  • 4
    Toss hot pasta into the sauce. Sprinkle parsley on top if desired. Time to delight with my American variation.
