Loved loved these tasty noodles. Quick and easy to make with excellent results. I used a yellow pepper instead of green and fresh fettuccini (it was what I had on hand). Thanks so much for sharing my friend. Made FYC tag game.

I scaled this back for 1 serve and used just under 2 ounces of dried fettucine noodles and well at the end of devouring this side wished I had cooked more especially considering the noodles only took 6 minutes to cook and this dish could easily be bought together in under 10 to 15 minutes and yes I included the green capsicum/bell pepper and well I all I can do is say thank you TeresaS for posting such a delicious side, made for Alphabet Soup tag game.
