My first thought when I made this recipe was what is the correct spelling of the word fettuccine? I have seen fettuccini, fettucine, and fettucini. And each time I think I like the way it’s spelled another chef spells it differently. Oh well, back to the food…I doubt you came for a spelling debate.
There are so many classic Italian dishes out there from Pasta Primavera, Lasagna, Fettuccine Alfredo, Chicken Parmesan, to 4 Cheese Gnocchi, the list goes on. There are also so many kinds of pasta noodles, tortellini, pappardelle, rigatoni, penne, linguine, etc. I love Italian food!
Some of the fresh noodles from Nicole Taylor’s Pasta Market where I go in Indianapolis. I have tried their tomato noodles and parmesan chive noodles and they are both phenomenal!
Besides my wedding day and honeymoon one of my best memories was when John and I went to Italy.
Having a picnic in Florence’s Pitti Palace eating a magherita pizza
Eating quattro formaggi gnoochi overlooking the canal in Venice right before we went on a gondola ride
When we had the true Fettuccine alla Bolognese over there, this dish instantly became one of our favorites because it is so hearty and delicious. So as an ode to us missing the best place on earth I hope you enjoy!
What is your favorite classic Italian dish?
And just because I am curious how do you spell fettuccine?
