I love a recipe I got from a friend in college: 8ozs dry fettucine, 6 tbsp butter, 1 cup sliced green onions, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1.5 cups shredded Parmesan cheese, salt & pepper to taste, 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg, and optional: cubed chicken breast cooked in garlic and olive oil. Directions: cook noodles to "al dente" and drain them; keep warm. In a wide fry pan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add green onions and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often. Add cream and boil rapidly until slightly thickened, and large, shiny bubbles form (about 2 minutes). Add hot, drained noodles to pan and toss gently. Add 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese and toss until coated. Add another 1/2 cup cheese, salt and pepper, and toss. Sprinkle nutmeg (and chicken, if using) and remaining cheese over the top just before serving. Tip--use green and white noodles; can also use fresh mushrooms when you add green onions and garlic.
