Southwestern Style Fettuccine
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
14 ingredients
4-6 servings
Found this recipe in a magazine years ago. It's a nice twist on fettuccine alfredo -- using creamed corn as the base for the "alfredo sauce." RitaL suggested adding jalapeño peppers. I think this is a great idea. I'll be making this recipe next week (May, 06) and will try it with serrano or jalapeño chiles.
