  • 3 ounces parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • black pepper
  • kosher salt

Directions

3. Drain the pasta and add to the saucepan with the cream. Add the butter and grated cheese, and stir over the heat to combine. Add pepper (a lot) and salt (very little) to taste Enjoy!
