Christmas Fettuccine


It's the most wonderful time of the year!!!  Gather the family around the tree, build a fire & serve them this comforting bowl of Christmas Fettuccine.  We all need something we can run to for a quick comfort food fix.  And for me (this should come as no shock) it is a warm & creamy pasta dish.  As any good southern gal, my refrigerator has a jar of bacon grease and it has a friend, a small pint of heavy cream.  We won't eat it everyday & of course I still know what's good for me.  But it's ok to splurge every now & again...especially here at Christmas!!!  I hope you & your family will create memories to be cherished for a lifetime, this Christmas.  And my hope this year is for everyone to keep Christmas in their hearts 365 days a year.  Because without it, none of us would be here.  

Ingredients:
8 oz fettuccine, cooked according to package directions
1 tablespoon butter
1-2 small garlic cloves, grated (1/2 tsp)
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup good parmesan
1/2 cup good mozzarella 
dash freshly grated nutmeg
dash of worcestershire
salt & pepper to taste (suggest 1/4 tsp of each)
garnish with parsley

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, add garlic.  Slowly whisk in cream & both cheeses, continue whisking til cheese is melted & sauce thickens.  If you have some leftover chicken, like I did, add it in.  Add your dash of nutmeg & worcestershire.  Toss in fettuccine noodles & stir.  Garnish with parsley. 

Makes about 4 servings
