15 Minute Creamy Fettuccini

I substituted spaghetti for the fettuccini (because that’s what was in the pantry) and added broccoli, carrots and snow peas. So I guess it would be better to call this 15 minute creamy spaghetti with mixed vegetables.

15 Minute Creamy Fettuccini

1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese

3/4 cups Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup milk

8 oz. fettuccini cooked and drained

In large saucepan stir together cream cheese, Parmesan, butter, and milk. Cook over low

heat until smooth. Add Fettuccini, toss lightly.

While I cooked the noodles in one pot, the vegetables were cooking in a second pot so it took a little extra time to chop vegies but still its a quick and delicious meal.

Cream cheese seems to last forever (if unopened). When it goes on sale for 99 cents I always buy several packages.

I served the fettuccini with garlic toast made from a day old hoagie (from work)

This recipe is VERY adaptable, sometimes I add shrimp or chicken.

I use the cheap shaker of Parmesan cheese in the recipe but I sprinkle the good stuff on top.
