Expert Tips

Straw and Hay is an Italian recipe that uses equal amounts of plain and spinach fettuccine. The pasta is tossed in a rich sauce of butter, cream and Parmesan cheese. This simple version recreates these flavors with convenient purchased cheese sauce.

After adding frozen vegetables to the pot of cooking pasta, return water to a boil before clocking the remaining cooking time.

Rosé wine and focaccia go well with this quick fettuccine. Pass a bowl of red and green grapes at the end of dinner.
