Mushroom and Spinach Fettuccine

May 12, 2014

Growing up we never had meat on Fridays.  You know, Catholic.  That was fine with me since I loved fish, I actually would prefer fish 4-5 times a week if I had the money.  So now I take advantage of #Meatless Monday and it is great on the budget.  I have been trying to eat more vegetables anyway so it works well for me.  Variety is the spice of life.  Pasta is happy to meet so many vegetables and the combination of mushrooms and spinach is very high on my list of favorites.  If you can make a basic “Alfredo” recipe then you probably can make at least 100 different meals today.
