This is another cheap and easy family favorite. It is from the Joy of Cooking cookbook, 1997, page 310. I've made a few alterations to make it cheaper like substituting regular dry store bought noodles for fresh and using milk instead of cream.
Bring to a rolling boil in a large pot:
6 qts water and 2 T salt
Add and cook until tender but firm:
1 pound fettuccine noodles
Melt in a large skillet over medium heat:
8 T (1 stick) butter
Drain the pasta and add it to the skillet along with:
1 c milk
1 c Parmesan Cheese
Salt, pepper and garlic to taste
Toss over low heat until the pasta is well coated. Serve immediately.
We like to add sauteed chicken or shrimp or vegetables too. Just season them and cook them in the butter before adding the noodles and other ingredients. Toss and serve as directed.
