  • 2 cups Milk Whole or 2%
  • 1.5 cups Chicken broth Low sodium
  • 1 tbsp Garlic
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste
  • 1-2 tsp Italian seasoning Optional
  • 8 oz Fettuccine Uncooked
  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese Shredded
  • 1 tsp Parsley For garnish


  • In a large nonstick pot, add milk, broth, garlic, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and bring to a simmer over medium high heat.
  • Add uncooked fettuccine and mix everything together. Let it cook over (without lid) over medium heat until pasta is almost cooked (usually 9 minutes). Be sure to mix pasta every few minutes to prevent sticking. 
  • Add heavy cream and parmesan cheese and mix and cook until sauce is reduced and becomes thick.
  • If the pasta is still not fully cooked, add some more milk and let it cook for a few more minutes. If the sauce becomes too thick, add a little milk to to make it smooth again.
  • Garnish with parsley and more freshly grated parmesan cheese and enjoy.  


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best when served fresh but leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge and reheated in the microwave for up to 2 days.
