My lady makes a fine fettucini sauce, and like most of our recipes, it's fairly easy. All you need is:
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
8 0z Velveeta cheese
1 can original Rotel tomatoes
1 cup half & half
You can do this light or rich. If you want to use fat-free cheese, soup and half & half it's a fairly light sauce. If you want to use the good stuff, that's okay too. It's also an easy recipe to double. If you're feeding a crowd, this is quick and filling.
Chop the onion and bell pepper and sautee them in a little vegetable oil. Add the other ingredients and simmer.
To this mixture she adds 2 packages (12 oz each) prepared crawfish tails and lets it simmer slowly on the stove for a half-hour. You can use anything, shrimp, crab meat, chicken, whatever light seafood or poultry you prefer. Below is a picture of the sauce. Milady is stirring in the crawfish. This is a double recipe. We're feeding a crowd of about 15 tonight.
Then, boil a pot of fettuccini noodles, drain and put it in a casserole dish and add the sauce Stir it together, top with plain bread crumbs and run it into a 350 oven until the bread crumbs are toasted. Here's what it looks like, finished and ready for the table.
Serve with hot garlic bread.
Oh, Damn, it's good.
