Fettuccine with Vegetables and Creamy Gorgonzola Sauce

From the book Welcome to 20 Fresh, Light & Quick Dinners published by Health-E-Meals.com!

If you're looking for a 'splurge' that won't make you feel guilty, this is the recipe to try! You even get great amounts of Vitamins A and C and calcium. It's rich, creamy and delicious. You could also add chicken or seafood (shrimp, scallops, salmon, crab, lobster, etc.) to this recipe and it would be fantastic.
Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 17 minutes
Time Saving Tips: Look for sliced mushrooms, broccoli and red bell pepper (salad bar, perhaps).
Use fresh packaged pasta to cut down on cooking time. Bottled, minced garlic is an acceptable substitute
for fresh.
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine pasta
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup red bell pepper slices
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups fat-free milk
  • Parmesan cheese
  • 2 ounces light cream cheese (about 1/4 cup)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 ounces crumbled gorgonzola cheese (about 1/2 cup)

Directions:

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Steam vegetables until tender-crisp.
  3. Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  4. Add minced garlic; cook 2-3 minutes,
    or until lightly browned.
  5. Add flour, whisk in.
  6. Slowly add milk, whisking constantly.
  7. Add cream
    cheese and gorgonzola; heat 1-2 minutes - until cheese is melted.
  8. Bring to a boil; sauce will thicken.
    Remove from heat.
  9. Toss together cooked pasta, vegetables and sauce.
  10. Top with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper
    (optional).
