Cook al dente pasta according to package directions.
Mince garlic and mix with dried parsley flakes. I like to mince half a bulb of garlic and save the remaining to sprinkle over the top at the end. It's amazing!
In an extra-large skillet or pot, melt butter over low heat. The butter should not come to a boil.
Whisk in heavy whipping cream. Again, mixture should not come to a boil. I usually set my stove to 2 or 3 heat level.
Whisk in freshly grated Parmesan cheese until melted.
Stir in 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic and dried parsley.
Whisk in pepper and salt. NOTE * There is a wide variety of Parmesan cheese available. Some are saltier than others. I HIGHLY recommend Bel Gioioso Parmesan cheese. This can be found in most grocery stores and Walmart. Take into consideration that a lot of pasta will be added to the sauce so it won't be as salty when served.
Fold in pasta. Serve with extra minced garlic ( highly recommended ).
