Tonight, I made dinner for my girl and her boyfriend. They come over once or twice a week to eat. Since Kelsey is a vegetarian, I plan something meatless that she'll enjoy. Tonight, it was fettucini Alfredo from scratch. Here's a pic & the recipe is listed below. It's amazing!
1 box fettucini cooked according to directions
1/2 bag frozen peas
1 jar sundries tomatoes, drained and sliced
To make the sauce:
I stick unsalted butter
2 bricks cream cheese
1/2 pkg Gorgonzola cheese
3/4 cup shredded asiago cheese blend
1 pint heavy cream
Red pepper flakes, pepper, parsley, salt, all to taste
2 teaspoons minced garlic
Melt butter in medium saucepan with minced garlic. Add cream cheese in chunks and melt slowly. Stir frequently and add Gorgonzola and Asiago cheeses. When cheese is smooth, add heavy cream slowly while stirring. Sprinkle in seasonings to taste. Stir periodically as you let it heat through and thicken. This makes enough sauce for 2-3 batches of noodles depending on how saucy you like your pasta. I usually serve it with crusty French bread and my own mix of 'bread dip.' It's decadent and yummy comfort food. Hope you enjoy it!
