Veg Fettuccine (Thin Pasta sticks)


 To be honest I never heard of this animal called "Fettuccine" long ago. My hubby does sometime eat lunch outside (read as "love" to eat always but I say NO :-)) and I keep checking what he had that day. Once he had gone to an Italian restaurant and told me he had some fettuccine and I was keen to know more about it. Did google about it and voila!! I was cooking that animal in my kitchen after couple days since I love all forms of pasta. Not to mention that it turned delicious in the first attempt. So here it is, try yourself!
