add the heavy cream and stir together, let come just to a boil
add the salt, then take off the heat and stir in the parmesan cheese
return to the stove over low heat and add the butter, stirring until melted
once melted, turn off the heat and serve over the pasta!
I suggest using penne pasta, but you can also use any other tubular pasta. I would stay away from flat pastas like farfalle or tiny pastas like elbows, because the sauce will just fall off.If you want to make this sauce in advance, you can. Store just the sauce in a glass jar, then warm through when ready to serve. I don't suggest mixing the pasta and the sauce until you are ready to serve.
