Written by Guest

Straw and Hay Fettuccine is a superb pasta dish that has so much flavour with fresh mushrooms and cheeses. Using the two different fettuccines gives the dish a lovely colour variety. Just boil the Plain Fettuccine and Spinach Fettuccine to create the base of this dish. The colours of the pasta give the dish its name. The ricotta cheese, skimmed milk and parmesan cheese makes such a lovely sauce that covers the pasta without being too thick. I normally serve this with Garlic Bread and a simple salad.  This is one of the easiest pasta dishes to cook and in only 15 minutes. I add any leftover ham or chicken to the mixture and heat thoroughly when really hungry.
