➤ You’ll need :


  • 6 Tablespoons salted butter, high quality
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk, 1% or 2% can be used if needed
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated and at room temperature
  • ½ cup Romano cheese, grated and at room temperature
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb. Fettuccine
  • Parsley, to garnish


➤ Step-by-Step Guide to Making it :



Boil the fettuccine according to package instructions. As the water preheats, begin the sauce.


Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for one minute.


Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring continuously.


Add the heavy cream in splashes, stirring continuously. Add the milk in the same manner.



Bring to a gentle bubble, then reduce heat to low to bubble. It will continue to thicken as it simmers.


Slowly stir in the cheese. Taste and season with salt/pepper if desired.


Drain the pasta and carefully mix it into the sauce until well incorporated.


The pasta will absorb the sauce and it will continue to thicken.


Garnish with chopped parsley and serve!



➤ Recipe Notes:


To make the sauce thinner or thicker, adjust the amount of heavy cream or cheese accordingly.

If the sauce is too salty for your liking, reduce the amount of cheese.

For a lighter version of this recipe, use half-and-half instead of heavy cream and reduce the amount of butter and cheese.

This recipe yields about 2 cups of sauce.



➤ Storage:


Store leftover sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. To reheat, gently warm the sauce on the stove or in the microwave, stirring occasionally.
