A-Z Blog Challenge: F
I was really struggling to come up with an 'F' ingredient - it was my husband who came up with Fettuccine. Don't know why I didn't think of it myself as we enjoy Fettuccine on a regular basis, I can only put it down to a senior moment.
Fettuccine is a thicker form of pasta and fantastic with bacony chunky sauces as the chunks and the sauce really clings to the strands and each mouthful is a delicious mix of heavenly pasta, delicious bits, and rich tasty, sauce...Mmmmm, don't it make ya hungry??
I have an Rose's amazing Fettuccine Mediterranean that is both healthy, delicious and super quick to prepare - just 10 minutes from start to plate!
Rose's Amazing Fettuccine Mediterranean - Serves 6 -
- 1 packet Fettuccine
- 200gm diced cooked Polish Salami
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian Herbs ( alternatively use a Pizza or Stuffing Herb blend )
- Diced onion - 1 large or 2 small
- 3 diced Tomatoes - fresh or drained canned tomatoes will work equally well
- 170 gm Black Olives - Pitted and Diced
- 1 cup of Grated Tasty Cheese
- 1/2 cup of Parmesan Cheese
- Seasoning to taste - Salt & Pepper
- Put jug onto boil for pasta.
- Put large saucepan on the stove over Low heat.
- Place onion, salt and pepper in heated saucepan, fry gently for 2 minutes stirring occasionally.
- Add sausage, tomatoes, olives, Italian herbs, cook for 2 minutes stirring regularly to stop the mixture from sticking to pan. Tip mixture out onto a plate. Mediterranean Mixture done!
- Place pot back onto stove, pour in boiling water, turn up heat and add Fettuccine. Add a pinch of salt and cook pasta for about 5-6 minutes - check by eating one, it needs to be firm but not hard to the bite. Pasta Done!
- Drain pasta, put back to saucepan and then add the Mediterranean mixture - gently toss through the pasta. Add Tasty cheese and some of the Parmesan ( keep back 1/2 to sprinkle on top later) gently stir through and serve onto plates or in bowls.
Sprinkle remaining Parmesan cheese onto portions for an intense flavour hit. Easy and so tasty!
Note *** The Photo is the same recipe using Penne Pasta but the result is the same with Fettuccine. It works with any pasta and is now our #1 Pasta Dish.
Enjoy and make heaps because it tastes even better the next day!
