Let's Cook- Fettuccine w/ Spinach & Tomato Alfredo

Fettuccine with Spinach and Tomato Alfredo Sauce
Recipe by Chef Huda

1 box of Fettuccine pasta
1/4 cup butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic-minced
1 cup chopped fresh spinach-rough chopped
2 large tomatoes-small diced
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon of freshly cracked black pepper

Please Wash your Hands…

Okay, now we are ready to start….

Let’s start with our pasta. Place a large pot of water on high and bring to a boil. Follow the directions on the pasta box for proper cooking time.

While your pasta is cooking, place a large sauté pan or skillet on medium heat add in 1 tablespoon of olive oil and butter. Once the butter melts add in the garlic let cook until soft.

Chef Huda Tip: Do not brown the butter or garlic.

Add in the heavy cream and let simmer for 3-5 minutes, then add in the parmesan cheese and whisk until cheese melt and the sauce is smooth.

Chef Huda’s Tip: When your pasta is done, do not rinse it. It is always best to take your pasta right from the pasta water to the sauce to insure pasta dish happiness!

Now, let’s make something Pretty and Delicious! Once the Pasta is done add it into the pan with your sauce. Add in spinach, tomatoes salt and remaining olive oil and toss then taste. If it’s perfect, plate on a large bowl and sprinkle with Freshly cracked Black Pepper. Now, all you have to do is Enjoy!

Chef Huda’s Healthy Tip: Spinach is an excellent source of Vitamins A,C, K, Iron Magnesium and Calcium. Leafy green vegetables like spinach help the body condition and nourish your hair.

    MMMM! Delicious!!! It vegetarian too. To make it a healthier meal I would use wheat pasta and light cream!

    Smart Balance products are good, but their Omega 3 spreads have a "fishy" aftertaste.

    Land O lakes has a fat free half and half product that's very well regarded.

    ___________________________________________

    I applaud Chef Huda for reminding us to wash our hands. We unknowingly bring so many germs into our homes every day – on our hands, purses and shoes.

    If you've ever experienced a sudden bout of nausea & vomiting, or diarrhea that feels as if it's coming out sideways, then you've probably experienced a food-borne illness. (You're lying on the bathroom floor – crying 'somebody shoot me NOW to put me out of my misery!')

    Hepatitis A is a foodborne illness, and can be transferred from body waste to the hands; its symptoms mimic the flu. Many have been affected and didn't know they had it!

    Mycobacterium has a looong life on surfaces like floors and doorknobs, and causes Tuberculosis.

    Escherichia Coli can be found on many common surfaces like elevator buttons, door handles, computer keyboards, and phones.

    The list goes on and on.

    The take home point is that you want NONE of this in your home or in your food, so first – let's wash our hands!

    Make it healthier:

    1) use whole grain or wheat pasta
    2) use fat free half and half instead of cream.
    3) cut back on the butter, or use a substitute (like earth balance or something).

    There ya go.

    This looks fabulous, but is there a HEALTHIER alternative to using heavy cream and butter? The spinach makes it appear healthy, but this dish is LOADED with saturated fat and cholesterol, and I cook for grandparents who, like many African Americans, have high blood pressure and heart disease and this dish is NOT "heart friendly".
