Fettuccini Noodles with Creamy Parmesan Sauce


Try this creamy alfredo-like sauce and you'll never, ever buy jarred sauce like this again.  This sauce can be made in the time it takes the water to boil for the pasta.  And it is SO good.  Don't let the peas deter you if you don't like them, you can simply leave those out or add steamed broccoli or carrots or asparagus...you get the idea.

1/2 stick butter
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg (or 1/8 t. ground nutmeg)
2 cups green peas or other veggies
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan

In a large skillet, over medium heat, melt butter and add cream.  Stir constantly and bring to a gentle boil.  Reduce heat to low and add nutmeg and vegetables.  Remove from heat.  Gently stir in Parmesan and add a few red pepper flakes if you want.

Pour over freshly cooked pasta noodles.  Enjoy!
