One of my favorite romantic Christmas movies – I have many – is The Holiday (if you haven’t already seen it, I would recommend the t.v.-friendly edit). I have it sitting on my DVR right now waiting to be watched. In that movie, two characters share “Christmas fettuccine.” I don’t know if fettuccine on Christmas Eve is a tradition anywhere, but it just sounds perfect to me, so I have made it a tradition for the past few years. When better to have rich, creamy comfort food than at Christmastime?
Just recently, I was watching The Best Thing I Ever Made on Food Network, and Guy Fieri shared this recipe… and I thought to myself that the red sun-dried tomatoes and the green onions on a bed of white, cheesy noodles and spicy chicken would be a perfect, more festive, twist on the standard Christmas Fettuccine Alfredo. Christmas fettuccine with a kick.
And, in case you’re worried, my version is flavorful, but not too spicy. My third-grader ate two portions and declared it, “awesome.” I hope you enjoy it as much as he did.
