The Window

Somewhere between snack time and starvation, there is a window. A SMALL window. One night last week, I found the window and my kids ate every bite of this new recipe I dished up. Let me know if your family likes it!

Oh, and if you have a dad that is as great as mine, you can use garden fresh cabbage and butcher fresh sausage.

Fettuccine with Italian Sausage and Vegetables

Adapted from Real Simple

  • ¾ lb fettuccine (white OR whole wheat)
  • 1 lb Italian sausage (casing removed)
  • 2-3 T Olive oil
  • 6 cups thinly sliced cabbage
  • 3 cups match stick carrots
  • 1 bunch green onions (greens only)
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Brown sausage in a skillet; remove. Add olive oil and veggies to skillet; cook over med-hi heat for about 6 minutes. Add chicken broth and simmer until tender; 3-4 minutes. Toss with cooked fettuccine, nutmeg, sausage, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese.

P.S. Sorry no photos. These days I can barely find clean plates and forks to eat dinner from let alone photograph it!

This recipe sounds delicious. And, that your kids ate it all and loved it....seems like a keeper. Do tell me what kind of italian sausage you use. I rarely use sausage and need to know a brand or type. Thanks so much. Looking forward to making this soon.
