Fettuccine Margherita

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

This recipe is from Quick Vegetarian Pleasures by Jeanne Lemlin. I have made this a million times and never get tired of it. This is a simple recipe where the result is more than the sum of its parts. I suggest using good quality tomatoes, it really does make a difference here. Don't worry about the red pepper, it's not a spicy dish.

Made this for Dinner tonight. It was really fast to put together for during the week and great that the ingredients are usually on hand here. I added a little more of the crushed red pepper than the recipe asks for. I think I was expecting more of a flavor though. But it was a delicious recipe anyways for the fettuccine. I think I would prefer the cheese in the sauce next time, maybe that would change the flavor just a bit. I would make this recipe again though and try it that way. Thanks for posting the recipe LonghornMama
