3/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Cook fettuccine according to the package directions but leave out the salt and butter or oil.
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the half-and-half cream, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper; cook for 1 minutes, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and add drained fettuccine. Toss mixture gently to coat fettuccine noodles.
