Believe it or not, Dear Readers, our Urkey Day leftovers are all gone! Tonight, I cook. All weekend long, everyone in our family has had the "hungries" and today is no exception. What to do? What to do? Make pasta of course! Make Holiday Fettuccini to be precise! I make my Holiday Fettuccini, Fettuccini Alfredo with eggs, cream and finely grated Parmesan cheese. The recipe guide is great because it is made in one pot so there is little mess.
Here is what to do for your Holiday Fettuccini:
Boil the pasta in salted water and drain it BUT reserve some of the cooking water. *While the pasta is cooking, crack two eggs into a bowl and beat them well. Set the beaten eggs aside.
Return the cooked pasta to the cooking pot. Now, using a large serving fork, begin to vigoursly stir the egg into the center of the hot pasta. Next, add enough cream until a sauce forms, probably about 2 cups. Add some of the reserved pasta water, if necessary, to bring the sauce to the correct, creamy consistency. Serve the pasta in bowls with a bit of extra cheese on top. That's it! Veggies are optional.
