"Nancy offered her cheese, Alyssa suggested the red peppers, and Christy thought the spinach seemed like a good idea. It all came together deliciously!"

dry fettuccine pasta
red bell pepper, diced
baby spinach leaves
shredded white Cheddar cheese
freshly ground black pepper to taste
Yum! Sauteed the veggies lightly, just until spinach was wilted. Didn't have white cheddar, so just substituted & sprinkled grated parm cheese. Good easy recipe for a quick dinner.
I made a few adjustments but overall it was very good.
I sauteed the red bell pepper and spinach just a bit, I cubed the cheese, and added some crushed red pepper.
This is a very good base recipe. I really liked the white chedder, and like other reviewers, I sauteed the red peppers and spinach. It's missing something though, maybe next time I will add some onions or garlic.... Update 05/06/09: Ok so I've been tweeking this since my last review. I use frozen chopped spinach, cooked in the microwave, I sautee the red peppers, then set aside, in the same skillet, I melt 3/4 cup of butter and 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, then I season to taste with seasoning salt, garlic powder, oregano,and onion powder. I add the hot pasta and cooked spinach to the butter sauce, stir around, then top with the sauteed peppers, crisp bacon, and top it all off with freshly shredded sharp white chedder. This is now my BF's favorite dish, and he is a meat and potatoes kind of guy!!!.
Simple & elegant. The only changes I made were to chiffonade the spinach and to add some very-thinly-sliced sweet onion. This is truly an excellent light lunch or supper dish that doesn't bog you down later. I'd strongly advise against dousing it in butter or any other grease. Thanks, Motts!
Great receipe, I added spiced olives of choice, instead of cheddar cheese, I grated parmasean. Used just a bit more olive oil also...very good.
I enjoyed this recipe. I wish I would have sauteed the peppers first. I used sharp cheddar, rotini pasta, a spoon of sour cream, and also tossed in some bacon.
