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.
