Most Awesome Fettucine Alfredo EVER!

My friend of many, many years made this for us one night at dinner. It was so good! There was a secret ingredient in there....nutmeg! And, it is so easy to make!

Here we go:
1/4 cup butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Add cream and simmer for 5 minutes, then add garlic and cheese and whisk quickly, heating through. Stir in nutmeg and serve. Serve over fettucine or angel hair pasta.
I go ahead and just toss the noodles with the sauce. Of course, you could add some grilled chicken, brocolli, mushrooms, etc. Some folks sprinkle some parsley on top as well. I don't do that. My kids won't eat it if there are specks of green on the top!
