Fast Food Fettuccini

 

This was my fast food dinner tonight. Thought I would share because it was so awesome and so easy. So creamy and also so healthy. Pasta is a real treat for me- but I will only eat it when the vegetables over-rule the pasta by at least 3 to 1.

I had been thinking about this pasta dish for a while but it finally cooled off enough outside for me to turn my oven on. This was creamy and amazing. And since I'm talking fast food here- I'll keep this short and get straight to the cream-free creamy fettuccine alfredo. Prep time: 10 mins. Cook time, about 8 mins. Dinner in under 20 minutes! That's fast food to me.

    I am so looking forward to trying this on the family with me! Starting the Transition 4 day menu plan this week with the FabDetox program. So excited! Thanks Meghan! My favorite fast food healthy meal? At home, it's my daughters Bruchetta, fresh from the garden tomatoes and onions, a bit of grated Parmesan and Balsamic Vinegar mixed together. Sour dough rounds or GF chips to dip with. Easy and FAST!!

    Hello, The recipe says 1 serving. Approximately how many cups of pasta does it yield? I am cooking for about 6 people and am wondering if I really need to multiply everything by 6. I have heard of recipes using various vegetables as noodles, but it looks like the only "noodles" in this recipe are actual noodles (penny-sized). Is that correct?. Also, what is a "penny size" of noodles? Is that the size after cooking the noodles? Thank you so much for your help!
