  1. Step 1

    Fill a large soup pot with cold water and a handful of kosher salt. Stir and taste; it should taste like sea water. Cover the pot and heat the water until it boils.​
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan , heat the butter and about half of the cream over medium-low heat until it starts to bubble. Lower heat and simmer gently for about 15 minutes or until the sauce has somewhat reduced. Remove from heat and cover.​
  3. Step 3

    Drop the macaroni into the boiling salted water and cook according to package instructions, about 10 to 12 minutes or until al dente , or tender but still firm to the bite. Drain fully and return to the pot.​
  4. Step 4

    Pour the hot cream and butter mixture over the macaroni and return the pot to a very low heat. Toss the pasta in the sauce until it is completely coated.​
  5. Step 5

    Add the rest of the cream as well as the cheese and toss until fully mixed. Adjust consistency with additional cream, if necessary.​
  6. Step 6

    Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve right away.
