Day Seven...Fettuccine!

This is just a yummy, and quick meal when you are on the go, or when you are rushing to get out and shop for presents or just getting home and realizing that you forgot to set something out to make. 

Fettuccine with Garlic Herb Butter

What You Need:

p.s.  This makes 4 servings so you may need to double it at least if you want fuller plates or more of a serving.

6 ounces uncooked fettuccine noodles, I use dry ones.
1 teaspoon butter
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs
       (possible ideas, parsley, basil, margoram or thyme)
1 Tablespoons butter, softened
1/8 teaspoon salt
Small pinch of pepper

What to Do:

  1. In a large saucepan, cook the fettuccine to doneness, as directed on package.  Drain, and return to saucepan.
  2. While pasta is cooking, melt 1 teaspoon butter over medium heat.  Add minced garlic, and cook for 30 seconds to a minute, or until the garlic begins to become a golden brown color.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the chopped herbs, 1 Tablespoon softened butter, salt, pepper, and cooked garlic, mixing well.  Add this to the noodles in the saucepan, and tos to coat the noodles well.
This is great alone, or with a grilled chicken breast to make a full meal, alongside a green salad with garlic toast. Enjoy!
