Fettuccine with Breadcrumbs

Kathy W


This simple dish is very easy to make. It is garlicky and the nuts give it a nice crunch. You can use any combination of your favorite herbs. Serve with a simple salad.

I was inspired by a recipe I found in "30 - Minute Cookbook"

How to Make Fettuccine with Breadcrumbs


  • 1Cook fettuccine according to package directions.
  • 2Mix together breadcrumbs and herbs.
  • 3In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium low heat. Add garlic and gently cook 1 minute.
  • 4Add breadcrumb mixture and almonds to butter and garlic. Stir to coat. Gently saute, stirring frequently until golden, about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Remove from heat and set aside until pasta is done. Stir occasionally.
  • 5Drain pasta and return to pan or place in serving bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, toss to coat. Add breadcrumb mixture, toss to mix. Serve . Garnish with parmesan.
  • 6Note: Homemade toasted breadcrumbs
    Toast several pieces of bread (Make extra at breakfast) and allow to set out 2-3 hours so it dries out completely. Tear into pieces and place in a food processor. Pulse until desired crumb is achieved. (No need to toast the breadcrumbs in the oven, it's already toasted!)
