With machine still running, add Parmesan and pecorino (or Romano) cheese, and then the remaining oil. Taste and season pesto sauce with salt, if needed. Cook fettuccine in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm, 2 to 4 minutes, drain. Pour pasta into a warmed large bowl and toss with butter, then with 1 cup of the pesto sauce. Pass remaining pesto on the side. Freese any remaining sauce for future use.
