    breezermom's Note:

    This recipe is from Chef Henry Douglas from the Mobile Admiral Semmes Hotel. This fettucine is rich and silky, and the brandy adds something different to the dish.

    2. 2
      Pour remaining oil in a large skillet and place over medium heat. When hot, add shrimp and saute 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Add garlic and brandy and saute for 2 minutes. Add cream, cooked fettuccine, salt and pepper. Simmer 5 minutes.
    4. 4

      mmmm, mmmm, good! I used multi grain fettuccine and fat free coffee creamer for the heavy cream with a bit of brandy extract for the flavor. For me it came out wonderful. Cooking the pasta took longer than anything else, and it was a most satisfying comfort dinner. Too bad that DH won't eat shrimp, he missed out on so much, but then again....more for me! :D

      What a great combination of ingredients for a quick flavorful meal. I couldn't find spinach fettuccine so I used linguine as that is what I had on hand, also used red wine, other than that made as written,"DELICIOUS". Thanks for posting. Made for you're win in the football pool week 16.

      So easy to prepare and so extremely flavoursome. :) I scaled back the recipe to two serves but, as an unashamed garlic lover, retained the four cloves of garlic and used 1/2 pound of shrimp (or what we call prawns!), olive oil and low-fat cream (amply creamy for us), so our fettuccine was decadently, deliciously shrimp/prawn-laden. My only addition was some fresh rosemary which blended well with the other flavours. At the last minute, I decided to use wine rather than brandy - and used a riesling that we had open - and was glad that I'd done so as this was more suited to our taste preferences. Thank you, breezermom, for sharing this recipe. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
