To all those who have criticized this recipe, here are a few notes: 1. Use fresh parmesan, grated (many reviewers say they HAVE, but...) 2. Add it SLOWLY -- don't dump the whole amount of cheese in at one time. Add it a half cup at a time, and keep stirring, and wait 3 or so minutes, and.... 3. Put the heat on medium, not medium low, and.... 4. Stir constantly, and... 5. Recognize it can be a BASE. For those of you who like more flavor, add garlic or onions or oregano or hot sauce or whatever you want. It's fine as it is, when made properly. If you want more flavors, or want it thicker, or want it thinner, correct as you go.


I love this sauce! I melt the butter, then add the cream and get that all mixed in and then wisk constantly while I add the cheese one handful at the time. Once everything is mixed in I just go through my spice rack and add whatever I want. Usually I use garlic powder, italian seasonings, basil, and parsly. I could eat this all by itself! Better than Olive Garden!

My husband requested I make Chicken Fettuccine for his birthday. I used this sauce and he said it was better than the restaurant sauce. The trick is to heat the cream slowly until it is almost simmering, then whisk the butter into the cream in small pieces until melted. Then whisk the cheese in until melted and use freshly grated cheese if available. The sauce comes out creamy, thick and delightful. A great recipe....
