Fettucini With French Onion Soup Sauce

Total Time

Okay, this may sound a little strange to everyone but I was trying to come up with dinner from what I had in the fridge. Hopefully the measurements are as accurate as can be but as I was doing this on the fly, please feel free to modify to your tastes. It got mixed reviews from my family but I LOVED it! I tend to be heavy handed with the cayenne so if you like a little spice don't be afraid to use it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. saute ham until warm with cayenne pepper and about a table spoon of the soup mix.
  2. add sour cream, milk, and the rest of the soup mix.
  3. when bubbling (not boiling, burnt milk will be gross) add the noodles and remove from heat.
  4. add salt, pepper, and parmigan cheese.
  5. optional: if you really like onion some chopped green onion on top will add color for the presentation but remember there is already onion in the soup mix.

Thank you for this recipe! I was also looking to use what I had in my kitchen, so rather than sour cream, I used a can of mushroom soup, and all of the sour cream I had left (about 2tbsp). I used leftover bacon (about 1/2cup), rather than ham, added extra milk and 2cups of grated mozzerella. I luckily never used any salt, as the bacon and the brand of mushroom soup added a lot of saltiness. I served it with veggies, chicken with dry onion soup mix as a rub, and served the sauce over penne noodles.
