  • In a large pot of boiling salted water cook the fettuccine until al dente. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, melt the butter over moderate heat until it begins to foam, about 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low, add the rosemary and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Season the sauce with salt and pepper, remove from the heat and keep warm.
