  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 8 oz dried Fettuccine
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cracked black pepper
  • cup grated parmesan cheese plus more for garnish


  • Place all ingredients, except Parmesan, into a Dutch oven or large skillet.
  • Place pot over medium-high heat and bring mixture to a boil, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the pasta is al dente.
  • Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan until sauce is thick and creamy. Season with more salt and pepper as needed.
  • Top pasta with more Parmesan and serve.



  • Using unsalted chicken stock (or broth) will allow you to control the amount of salt in the dish, ensuring that the final product won’t be too salty.
  • Using full or partial fat milk will help to ensure a creamy and thick sauce, while still being a little healthier then heavy cream.
  • It’s important to frequently stir the dish throughout the simmering process so that the pasta cooks evenly and doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot or to itself.
