Buttered Fettuccini Noodles with Parmesan Cheese

This is a super-simple side dish that my family really enjoys. You can make the pasta as shown, or dress it up with steamed spinach or sauteed vegetables, parsley, red pepper flakes and garlic.

It is also a fantastic compliment to a variety of main course Italian favorites like grilled swordfish or broiled shrimp.


1 pound fettuccini noodles
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shredded hard parmesan cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
Salt and pepper to taste


Boil the noodles al dente, according to package instructions. Drain and add back to the pot. Melt the butter and add to the noodles. Add the sour cream, salt and pepper. Cover to heat through and stir lightly to incorporate. Add the cheese and stir one last time. Serve immediately.

Serves 4-6
