Preparation

  • Heat 2/3 cup of the cream and the butter over medium heat in a large saucepan until thickened–about a minute. Turn off stove.
  • Cook the pasta until it is al dente. Drain and transfer to the saucepan with the cream and butter.
  • Turn heat on low and toss the pasta to coat evenly with the sauce. Add the remaining 1/3 cup cream, the 2/3 cup of cheese, a pinch of salt and the pepper.
  • Add a couple of gratings of nutmeg. Toss again briefly until the fettuccine are well coated. Taste and correct the salt.
  • Serve immediately with extra grated Parmesan on the side.
  • For the prawns:
    Brush a grill or heavy skillet with oil. Season jumbo prawns with salt and lots of freshly milled pepper–about 3 prawns per person is recommended. Cook on high heat until the prawns turn pink. Do not overcook. Serve on top of pasta.
