Garlicy Fettuccine Alfredo

Luxuriously rich & creamy Fettuccine Alfredo- traditionally it wouldn't have garlic but I think it adds a wonderful flavor. Simple, requiring only a few ingredients, this is quite possibly the quickest cooking dish I make, although you would never guess it by the flavor! Ingredients:
1/2 lb (8 oz) dried Fettuccine Pasta
1 cup Heavy Cream
4 tbsp Butter
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
Fresh chopped Parsley (for garnish)
Salt & Pepper
When you make a dish as simple as this, it really is important to use the best ingredients. Buy good pasta, make sure it is from Italy. Like this brand. I got this at our Harris Teeter grocery store & it cooks much faster than Amercian dried pasta. Directions:

In a chefs pan or large skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter & cook the minced garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add the heavy cream & cook over medium to medium/ low heat (paying attention not to boil).
Fill a large pot with water & cook the pasta according to the package directions. This took about 5 minutes. Drain the pasta well.
Add the Parmesan, reserving about 1/4 for topping, to the cream sauce & stir to incorporate. Turn the heat off & add the pasta into the sauce. Toss to coat. Serve immediately, topped with the reserved parmesan cheese & chopped parsley.
This recipe serves 2-3.
