Recipe: Penne in ParmesanCream Sauce

12 ounces mini or regular penne pasta(or other pasta such as rotini or gemelli)6 tablespoons butter1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheeseKosher or sea salt and freshly groundpepper to taste

  • Cook pasta according to package directions,preferably al dente (firm to the bite). Drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in medium saucepanuntil it starts to bubble and foam. Pour in cream and bring toa boil. Add the cooked pasta, stirring to coat well; then stirin the Parmesan cheese until well combined. Season with saltand pepper, as desired and serve.

    Makes 8 servings.


    • The success of the sauce in this recipedepends entirely on the use of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.Do not use the canned variety as it will not melt properly.
    • Cream sauces, like this one, will “break”(the cream and butter separates) when reheated. No worries, simplyadd a small amount of cream after reheating and stir tocombine to “mend” the sauce.
