Test Kitchen Tips

Use Parmigiano-Reggiano rather than Parmesan, and grate it yourself. It melts better and prevents the sauce from becoming gritty.

For the smoothest sauce, grate the cheese as fine as possible in a food processor using the regular blade.


Heat cream, garlic, and nutmeg in a saucepan over medium-low until steaming. Whisk in butter until completely melted.

Add Parmigiano-Reggiano and increase heat to medium. Cook sauce until thickened, whisking constantly, 20 minutes. Discard garlic, then season sauce with pepper.
