A favorite of President John F. Kennedy

 Here are the directions:

1 Parmigiano reggiano cheese finely grated.
2  cook fettucine for 8 to 10 minutes al dente. Drain well.
3 Now, in another pan melt butter on medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, for 3 minutes or until softened and transparent.
4 Stir in chicken stock and bring to a boil; simmer for 5 minutes . You want to reduced it slightly.
5 Whisk in the cream and cook for 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
