Easy Cheesey Fettucini Sauce by Toni
Simple easy dinner. Its just a bowl of pasta. Ok..this is not diet. But so good.
As usual I don't have a recipe....but I did try to get some adequate measurements. The red utensil is a 1/3 cup measure.
Start boiling the water in the sauce pan. When the water is boiling add 1/2 package of fettucini noodles. (Salt water if desired)
Then in a meduium sized skillet, add about 3 tblspoons of butter, melt and sautée with four cloves garlic and about 1/8 cup finely chopped onion.
Cook about 3 minutes, careful not to burn the butter or the garlic.
Add a few tablespoons of flour and mix well and then add about 1/3 cup of half and half. I was cooking lightly over medium or low gas flame.
Stir in a heaping 1/3 cup of sour cream...(uh huh.... so now you know how good it will be).
Add salt and pepper as desired and 2 tablespoons of parsley. Fresh is THE best but I was out and this was a no trip to the store meal.
Add a handful of cheddar cheese. Mine was about 1/2 cup.. (Tillamook cheddar) I have big hands, so maybe more.
Stir in about 1/3 cup parmesan cheese. Again fresh is best, I only had the Kraft stuff. Even more parmesan would work... cheese y'know!
Add in about 1/2 - 3/4 cup of water to thin and let cook simmer about 10 minutes. (Broth would be tastier...I had none)
When the noodles are ready, per package instructions, or how you like it best, strain and put back in the pan and add about 1 cup of the sauce...There will be an extra half a cup of sauce or so....
Go ahead and add it if you want.
Enjoy...then blog about it. (Simple ingrediate list after the pics)
