Spicy Fettuccine (Pasta) With Mixed Vegetables

Updated on April 16, 2008

Spicy Fettuccine With Mixed Vegetables

Fettuccine are a popular Italian pasta . In Italian fettuccine means, "little ribbons" are a type of pasta. Fettuccine are made from flat sheets of pasta cut into ribbon-shape strands(fettuccine) and,similar to tagliatelle. In Italian Cuisine, it is traditionally made fresh(either at home or commercially), but dried versions also exist on the market. It is one of the most popular shapes.

Wider than the other popular flat shape, linguine, this basic noodle provides a better surface for catching sauce.

This recipe is a pure vegetarian, healthy and nutrition and in with,easy to make and very delicious. Generally I use frozen mixed vegetables, because, this way is very simple, but you can use any combination of fresh( green beans, broccoli, asparagus spears and any other variety, as you like) or frozen vegetables. It paires best with rich and creamy sauces, including cheese sauces, but olive oil, tomato sauces and butter are commonly served with it.
