  Butter 1⁄4 Pound

  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Freshly grated nutmeg 1 Pinch

1. In a heavy heatproof casserole, combine the butter and 1/2 cup of the cream. Simmer over low heat until the butter has melted; this should take less than 1 minute. Turn off the heat.
2. Prepare pasta, drain, then transfer to the casserole with the butter and cream. Turn the heat on under the casserole and, with
2 wooden spoons or 2 wooden forks, lift the pasta and toss well, coating it completely with the sauce. Add the remaining 1/2 cup cream, parmesan cheese, some salt and pepper to taste, and nutmeg. Toss briefly for another minute, correct the seasoning, and serve immediately with more grated cheese on the side.
