Healthy Weeknight Meal: Fettuccini Alfredo

Making and eating dinner was the easy part!

This recipe comes from the The Happy Herbivore Cookbook (p. 163), and easily came together in less than 30 minutes. I’ve made the recipe a few times, so that may have shaved a few minutes off of my time in making it.

Fettuccini Alfredo with Peas and Bacon Bits (recipe also from The Happy Herbivore Cookbook, p. 137. I made those ahead of time).

I usually like to add frozen broccoli to the pasta, but I happened to be out. I used peas instead, though I would have preferred a less starchy vegetable. I suppose I could have added a salad! 🙂

So what was the hard part?

After I ate, Skyped with Vegan Boyfriend, went to the gym, took a shower, made my hot chocolate and watched House… well, learning that I had 200+ blogs to read! I guess that’s VeganMoFo for you…

Well, I still have to read a lot of posts. And clean up the kitchen!

Also, I love it when you follow me on Facebook or Twitter!

  1. I love Vegan MoFo, but it would take me all year to catch up on all the posts! Your pasta looks delicious. I’ve been wanting a copy of the Happy Herbivore, and now I think it might be at the top of my christmas list!

      It’s a good one- really simple recipes with very basic ingredients. It’s not what I would use to wow a crowd (though I hear some do!), but it’s nice simple food.

    I’ve never tried the alfredo recipe from that book — I’ll have to add it to my must-try list.

    And Google Reader apparently stops counting new posts to read when you hit 1000 — I clearly have a lot of VeganMoFo reading to get through tonight!

      Honestly, the day I imported the feed, I ended up having to just “mark all as read.” I couldn’t deal with the thought of over 1000 posts!

  3. Great post! We were wondering if we could use your photograph for our blog? We have a recipes section and this is one of our favourite dishes. We’d link you of course. Lucy and Kae x
