Tagliatelle in a White Wine Cream Sauce

Photo by Saud F. Al-Owaidah
  • Fresh tagliatelle 
  • 3/4 of a cup of parmesan
  • 1 & 1/4 of a cup of white wine
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon of ground mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoons of freshly ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of flower
  • A knob of butter
  1. In a saucepan, start by melting the butter on a low heat
  2. Add the crushed or finely chopped garlic
  3. Pour in white wine and let it simmer until the garlic is cooked
  4. Add in your other ingredients, whisking the mixture and tasting frequently
  5. If it's too liquidy, add more flour. If it's too thick, add more wine or cream (or milk)
  6. Mix with the fettuccine and serve! (The boyfriend says it's delicious with bacon... but that, I can only assume)

Healthier Alternatives: 

Instead of tagliatelle, quinoa pasta is amazing and very good for you
You can also replace the parmesan & cream with skim milk ricotta, but if so, cut down on the wine and you won't need the flour
Also use a tablespoon of olive oil instead of butter

And now, a treat for the ears:
