Spinach Fettuccine & Vegetables

Zucchini was available at the Coit Road Farmers Market yesterday and, of course, I bought several. After a long winter, it is wonderful to see vegetables and fruits coming into season here in NE Ohio. So what did I do with my bounty ? Well, Lucy of Sweets, Savories, Etc. blogged about her Cheesy Zucchini Squares yesterday and let me tell you this is a must try recipe. Grazie Lucy!

I also bought some fresh, spinach fettuccine from my local family-owned grocer and sauteed some veggies to toss with it. Yummy!

Spinach Fettuccine with Veggies


1 pound fresh spinach fettuccine
1 candy onion with leaves, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp. butter
2 zucchini, sliced
1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half
8 oz. baby portabella mushrooms, sliced
8 oz. snowpeas
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Freshly-grated Parmesan cheese

Bring pot of salted water to boil. Over medium heat in a large deep skillet, heat olive oil and butter. Add onions and garlic and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes. Add remainder of vegetables and cook just till tender. Add basil, oregano, salt and freshly ground pepper.

Cook fresh fettuccine about 3 minutes, drain and toss with veggies, grate Parmesan cheese on top.

maybelle's mom said...

delish. I can't believe you had zucchini. we didn't have any at Shaker. Maybe we should try coit one sat.

Beth said...

This looks delicious. Unfortunately I don't think I could persuade my hubby to eat the spinich pasta - he has a thing about it!? - will have to try it with ordinary - why is that blokes are so picky!?

OhioMom said...

Maybelle .. I was surprised and pleased to find it at Coit, and of course I bought more strawberries ... LOL!

Beth ... fortunately the food critic (hubby) does like it, but he can have his picky moments :)

Spinach fettuccine has always been one of my favorites, but I've never had it fresh. I bet it really did taste scrumptious. I love the idea of tossing it with other delicious fresh vegetables. Looks wonderful!

OhioMom said...

It was wonderful, will be real hard for me to eat the stuff in the box after this :)
