Creamy Cheese and Pepper Fettuccine


This is such a simple recipe for a great reward. The sweet peppers balance deliciously with the savory garlic and cheese sauce. It looks fancy….but alas, it’s just “Comfy”.

My Aunt Kelly gave this to me at my bridal shower nearly 12 years ago and I’ve loved it ever since. It’s a wonderful meal to serve for company …just add add a dinner salad and garlic bread. Mmmmm…

So, to my vegetarian friends-keep this one pinned. For my GF friends, use rice noodles 😉


Got to love those family recipes!


If you can’t find Mascarpone cheese, you can use cream cheese as a substitute. The recipe says 1/2 cup, but I just threw in the entire container- I didn’t have any use for the remains and I lika the cheese 🙂


In a medium bowl, combine your Mascarpone and Parmesan …mix well.


Sauté your sliced peppers in a medium pan in olive oil for about 5 mins. Add garlic and sauté an additional 2 mins.


Boil your fettucini by package directions. When noodles are done, pour into strainer and reserve 1/2 cup of starchy water for the sauce. This will serve as a natural thickening agent.


Add water and cheese mixture to the peppers.


Stir on medium heat.


Add your noodles to the pan and stir well. Season with salt, pepper and if you want a little more garlic you can add some garlic powder.


Serve with a sprinkle of parsley! This is honestly soooo delicious.
