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


  1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions.
  2. Mix together breadcrumbs and herbs.
  3. In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium low heat. Add garlic and gently cook 1 minute.
  4. Add 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.
  5. Drain 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.
  6. Note: 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!)
