fettuccine alfredo & bruschetta

20130905_184721(2)WebLast week I made a super easy Fettuccine Alfredo and Bruschetta for dinner. It was so good and so easy to make, I thought I’d share it here.

Fettucine Alfredo (from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook)


*8 ounces fettuccine

*2 tbsp butter

*1 cup whipping cream

*1/2 tsp salt

*1/8 tsp ground black pepper

*1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. Cook the pasta.

2. Melt butter in a large saucepan and add cream, salt, and pepper. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and boil for 3-5 minutes (until mix thickens).

3. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese. Add to drained pasta.



*one package cherry tomatoes

*fresh basil

*minced garlic

*olive oil

*salt and pepper

I don’t have an exact recipe for this, but basically I did the following:

1. Slice cherry tomatoes into fourths. Chop up a handful of basil (about 10-12 leaves). Mix in a bowl with a couple cloves of minced garlic, about 1/8 to 1/4 cup of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.

2. Slice a loaf of french bread in half. Brush with olive oil and broil for 3 minutes.

3. Cut loaf into 2-3 inch pieces, add bruschetta on top of each slice, and enjoy!

Ta-da! A quick and easy weeknight dinner. I’m sure I’ll be making this again soon!

    1. Y’all are always welcome, but I know the drive into LA isn’t super short! Though, I can’t make any promises about the food…I’m still learning how to cook. 🙂
