  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic finely grated
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley


  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  • Increase the heat a bit to medium-high and add 1 cup heavy whipping cream. Bring the sauce to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • As it simmers, the sauce will start to thicken. Stir in salt and black pepper to taste, parsley, and grated garlic.
  • Reduce the heat to low, then stir in the finely grated parmesan cheese and continue stirring until all of the parmesan cheese has melted. 
  • Remove from the heat. Adjust salt and pepper as needed and serve immediately with the pasta of your choice.
