Creamy Garlic Parmesan Pasta Recipe

Certainly! Here’s the recipe for Creamy Garlic Parmesan Pasta:


  • 8 ounces (225g) fettuccine or your favorite pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream (whipping cream)
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)


  1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions in a large pot of salted boiling water. Cook until al dente (firm to the bite). Drain the pasta and set it aside.
  2. In a large skillet or saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  3. Add the minced garlic to the melted butter and sauté for about 1-2 minutes, or until the garlic becomes fragrant. Be careful not to let it brown or burn.
  4. Pour the heavy cream into the skillet with the garlic and butter. Stir the mixture and let it simmer gently for 2-3 minutes, allowing the cream to reduce slightly.
  5. Gradually stir in the grated Parmesan cheese, a little at a time, until it is fully melted and the sauce becomes smooth and creamy.
  6. Season the sauce with salt and black pepper to taste. Remember that Parmesan cheese can be salty, so it’s a good idea to taste before adding more salt.
  7. Add the cooked pasta to the creamy garlic Parmesan sauce in the skillet. Toss the pasta gently in the sauce until it is well coated and heated through.
  8. If the sauce seems too thick, you can add a splash of pasta cooking water to loosen it up and create a smooth consistency.
  9. Once the pasta is evenly coated with the sauce, remove the skillet from the heat.
  10. Garnish the Creamy Garlic Parmesan Pasta with chopped fresh parsley, if desired, for a pop of color and added freshness.
  11. Serve the pasta immediately while it’s still warm and enjoy the comforting and rich flavors of this creamy dish.
  12. This Creamy Garlic Parmesan Pasta can be enjoyed as a standalone meal or paired with a side salad and some garlic bread for a complete and satisfying dinner.
  13. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a day or two. To reheat, you can use the stovetop with a little additional cream or milk to bring back the creaminess.

Indulge in this delightful Creamy Garlic Parmesan Pasta that’s simple to make and sure to be a hit with family and friends. Bon appétit!
