Fettuccine al Mascarpone

15 Min

Don't let the name of this dish scare you! It's just fancy mac and cheese! Mascarpone is a velvety-rich, creamy cheese with a delicate flavor, and this dish will surely make your tummy very happy!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (16-ounce) package dried fettuccine
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 5 thin slices, prosciutto, coarsely chopped (about 4 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces mascarpone cheese (see note)

What to Do

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and toss with softened butter in a serving bowl.

  2. Sprinkle prosciutto and next 3 ingredients over pasta; toss well. Add mascarpone, and toss pasta until well blended.


Readily available in the dairy section of the supermarket, mascarpone is the cheese of choice in tiramisu. It can be pricey, so if you need a substitute, try cream cheese.
