Wash produce before use


Cook the fettuccine

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Separate the fettuccine so the noodles don’t clump together during cooking. Add the fettuccine and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the fettuccine, reserving ½ cup [1 cup] pasta cooking water. While the water is heating and the fettuccine is cooking, prepare the salad.


Make the Italian salad

  • Trim the root end from the romaine; cut the romaine in half lengthwise, then coarsely chop crosswise.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half. 
  • Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; thinly slice the peppers.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop half the leaves for garnish. 

In a medium bowl, toss together the romaine, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, whole parsley leaves, and Italian dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Heat the sauce; finish the pasta

  • Set aside half the Parmesan for garnish.

In a large frying pan off the heat, stir or whisk together the “Alfredo sauce” base, reserved pasta cooking water, and half the Parmesan. 

Set the pan over medium heat, stir or whisk in 2 tablespoons [4 TBL] butter or oil (from your pantry), and cook, stirring often, until blended and heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the fettuccine and toss to coat. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the fettuccine to individual bowls, garnish with the remaining parsley and Parmesan, and sprinkle with as many chile flakes as you like. Serve the Italian salad on the side.
