Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce May 14, 2008

This to me tasted like a great alternative to Fettuccine Alfredo.  While I love the taste of Alfredo, it is a little too heavy for me and I always feel sick after I eat it.  This had a cheesy taste and a lot of flavor, but wasn’t heavy at all.  It was quick and easy to make and could take on lots of different variations, too!

12 oz dry fettuccine pasta

2 red bell peppers, julienned

3 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 t cayenne pepper (less if you don’t like spicy food)

1 c reduced fat sour cream

3/4 c chicken broth

3/4 c grated Parmesan cheese

salt and pepper to taste

 

Boil fettuccine, drain. 

 

Spray cooking oil in large skillet and saute red bell peppers, garlic and cayenne pepper over medium heat 3-5 minutes.

 

Stir in sour cream and broth; simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in cheese.

 

Toss hot pasta with sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste; serve.

 

We served this with grilled chicken marinated in Italian dressing and grilled asparagus.  It was super delicious!
