  • 1 tsp ​ pepper

  • 4 tbsp butter

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 4 cups chicken stock ​

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

  • 3/4 lb fettuccine noodles, broken in half

  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated (pre shredded doesn’t melt as well)

  • ½ cup capers, drained (one small jar)

  • ½ cup kalamata olives, pitted, cut in 1/2 lengthwise

Directions

  • Heat a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat.
