This heavy-duty cheese pasta sauce with parsley will be a hit with the whole family.


  • Coarse salt

  • 12 ounces fettuccine

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup half-and-half

  • ½ cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley


  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta water; drain pasta, and set aside (reserve pot).

  2. In pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add half-and-half and cheeses; stir to combine, and bring just to a simmer. Add pasta, and toss to combine. If needed, gradually add enough reserved pasta water to thin sauce (sauce will thicken as it stands). Serve sprinkled with parsley.
