Today I’ve created an easy and delicious pasta dish which is full of flavor and will leave your taste buds begging for more.
About a month ago on a whim, I bought Al Dente Spinach Fettuccine. It sounded delicious, but as it sat in my pantry, I had no idea how I could turn it into a meal. Last week I was starving and read on the package how the fettuccine cooked in three minutes and I was sold, I had to make it for dinner. I considered putting spaghetti sauce top of the fettuccine until I read a recipe on the back of the package. I had most of the ingredients, and it sounded more appealing than my original plan.
I gave this recipe a try and you guys; it’s amazing! I’ve made it for several meals now, and it’s quickly become a staple when I’m lazy and not in the mood to cook, which if you’ve seen is always.
I love the crunch of the walnuts with the breadcrumbs. To me, this is heaven in my mouth, and I’m salivating as I type this.
If pressed for time, this is a perfect recipe. The fettuccine takes between 3-5 minutes to cook (once the water is boiling) and it takes the same amount of time to cook the garlic, breadcrumbs, and walnuts. I sometimes saute the ingredients for 8 minutes for an extra crunch. In the past, I’ve also included peppers and broccoli into the recipe.
