Cream, butter and parmesan cheese will give you Alfredo sauce. A traditional sauce for fettucine. You can add minced garlic as well, if you like.

8 Oz Fettuccine Noodles
4 T Butter
2 Cl Garlic
1C Heavy Cream
TT Black Pepper
1 C Grated Parmesan Cheese
TT Nutmeg

"TT" = to taste

olives, anchovies, sundried tomatoes and halved cherry tomatoes with garlic, your choice of herbs, bit of chili if you fancy, pepper (don't add salt as olives and anchovies are salty) all mixed through a cream sauce over pasta and topped with grated parmesan or similar. No set quantities - just what looks and tastes good to you.

Get a can of tomatoes and a can of tomato paste, and a few herbs (basil being the best). Cook with come chopped onion and garlic. Great and simple sauce.
