In the pasta mood? Trying to stay healthy? This recipe has no meat in it, just noodles, sauce and veggies!


8 oz. uncooked fettuccine or linguine

1 tablespoon live or vegetable oil

1-cup fresh broccoli florets

1-cup fresh cauliflower florets

2 medium carrots, thinly sliced (1 cup)

1 cup frozen sweet peas, thawed

1 small onion, chopped (1/3 cup)

1 cup Alfredo sauce

1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese



*Cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package.

*Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peas and onion in oil 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp tender. Remove from heat; keep warm.

*Stir Alfredo sauce into vegetable mixture. Stir in fettuccine; heat through. Sprinkle with cheese.

*note: I make this recipe quite a bit and change it up almost every time I make it. Using different veggies when you  make it will mix it up a little bit for you. Add extra parmesan cheese for some more flavor!
