  • 1 pound dry fettuccine
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 thinly sliced garlic cloves
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 4 ounces grated Parmesan (3/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • salt and cracked black pepper to taste


  • Fill a large pot with water and place over high heat. Once water comes to a boil, add pasta and a small handful of salt.
  • Boil pasta, stirring occasionally until al dente, about 7 minutes. Drain and toss with a small drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Set aside.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat and melt butter. Continue to cook butter until browned and a nutty flavor comes through, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic and cream and increase heat to medium-high to bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until mixture reduces by 1/3, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Slowly whisk gratedParmesan into the cream mixture until fully incorporated and smooth. Continue to simmer sauce for 2 to 3 minutes or until thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.
  • Stir in peas and remove from heat. Toss fettuccine into the browned butter alfredo sauce until completely coated. Adjust seasonings. Top with extra grated Parmesan if desired and serve.
