Meyer Lemon & Thyme Fettuccine Alfredo 

2 tbsp butter

1 clove garlic, minced

2 c. heavy cream

¾ c. Parmesan cheese, grated

10-12oz. fettuccine noodles

1-2 meyer lemons, zested

1 sprig of fresh thyme

Pinch of fresh grated nutmeg

Sea Salt & Cracked black pepper, to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions. While you are getting your fettuccine cooked up, start preparing your alfredo sauce. Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat and add the garlic. Cook for about 3 minutes and carefully pour your cream into your garlic butter. Gently stir for about 10-15 minutes. Add the lemon zest, nutmeg, thyme, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Mix until the cheese is melted and then carefully fold in your al dente fettuccine noodles that have been cooked and drained.  Your alfredo will be ready when the sauce thickens and adheres well to your noodles. Check to see if it needs more salt and pepper before it is plated up.  Serve it with a thyme sprig and lemon zest on top.
