  • fettuccine 400g
  • double cream 150ml
  • parmesan (or vegetarian alternative) 75g, finely grated, plus a little extra
  • butter 20g
  • black peppercorns ground to make 1 tsp
  • flat-leaf parsley a handful, chopped


  • Step 1

    Cook the fettucine in a large pan of boiling salted water following pack instructions, then drain well, reserving some of the cooking water.

    Step 2

    While the pasta cooks, heat the double cream in a frying pan until it just comes to a simmer, then add in the parmesan, butter and black pepper, stir to melt the cheese.

    Step 3

    Tip in the pasta and toss really well, adding enough of the pasta cooking water to make a sauce that coats the pasta well. Season. Divide between 4 bowls and scatter over some parsley and a little more parmesan, if you like.
