  • 3 tablespoons - sweet butter
  • 2 tablespoons - olive oil
  • 2 cloves - garlic, minced
  • 2 cups - heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoons - white pepper
  • 1/2 cups - grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cups - mozzarella cheese
  • 1 boxes - 12 oz. bow-tie pasta (or favorite pasta style)
  • Directions:

    Melt butter and olive oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add cream, garlic, and white pepper; bring to just under a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until mixture is slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.

    Stir Parmesan cheese into cream mixture and simmer until sauce is thickened and smooth, about 8-10 minutes. Add mozzarella cheese to sauce; cook and stir until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

    Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 6 to 8 minutes.

    Drain and transfer pasta to serving plates. Spoon sauce over pasta. Add chopped fresh parsley to garnish, if desired.
