Delicious Pasta Recipes, Vegan and Vegetarian

Fettucine Alfredo

This is a very popular dish with my family. It is extremely easy to do and yet you end up with a delicious dinner that is filling and satisfying. The recipe calls for mushrooms, but you may use another vegetable or not use any vegetables. Just ignore the steps for sauteing the mushrooms if you decide not to include a vegetable.

It is a very rich dish that has cream & butter in addition to olive oil. For health reasons and if you are watching your weight, substitute the whipping cream with milk and use olive oil instead of butter to saute the mushrooms. This dish should be accompanied with a citrus salad as it helps to neutralize the richness of the fettuccine dish. Garlic bread or just fresh rolls makes a nice addition.
