Recipe Ingredients for Creamy Fettuccine with Brussels Sprouts & Mushrooms

15 ounces Whole Wheat Fettuccine
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms
4 cups thinly sliced Brussels sprouts
1 cup green peas
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
4 oz. dry sherry
2 cups low-fat milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 cup finely shredded colby jack cheese

Recipe Directions for Creamy Fettuccine with Brussels Sprouts & Mushrooms

  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, return to the pot and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, Brussels sprouts and peas and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms release their liquid, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add sherry (or vinegar), scraping up any brown bits; bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until almost evaporated, 10 seconds (if using vinegar) or about 1 minute (if using sherry).

  3. Whisk milk and flour in a bowl; add to the skillet with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until the sauce bubbles and thickens, about 2 minutes. Stir in cheese until melted. Add the sauce to the pasta; gently toss. Serve with more cheese, if desired.
