Italian Vegetable Creamy Fettuccine is full of delectable broccoli and other garden treats. Try this satisfying but not overly-rich dish for a change from meaty pasta combinations.


  • 1 pkg. (9 oz.) BUITONI Refrigerated Fettuccine, cooked, drained and kept warm
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup diagonally sliced celery
  • 1 large onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon crushed, dried basil
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Fat Free Milk
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper strips
  • 1/2 cup loose-pack frozen peas
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, (optional)


HEAT olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add broccoli, celery, onion, garlic and basil; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in evaporated milk, cheese and pepper; bring just to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, covered, for 5 minutes.

COMBINE cornstarch and small amount of broth in small bowl; add to skillet. Gradually stir in remaining broth, bell pepper and peas. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened and vegetables are tender (do not boil). Serve over pasta. Sprinkle with cheese.

Very tasty

It was a lovely dish and easy to prepare, the only thing is where I come from, chicken broth is a soup and also not vegetarian so We left that out when making the dish for our vegetarian friend. Still tasty but made 4 portions rather than the stated 6.

Extremely bland. For leftovers added sauteed mushrooms, pepperoni, and topped with a small amount of cheddar cheese...then it was WONDERFUL!

I was originally hesitant because of the evaporated milk but I should never have been. Easily one of my favorite dinners ever and I make about once a week! This was so tasty and it didn't take long to make at all. Everyone should try this recipe!

I made this last night for supper. (i like to try new things every now and then) The only thing I added was cooked diced chicken breast. This made it a complete meal. Everyone LOVED it. I will definitely make this again. It was served with a salad and fresh french bread. absolutely wonderful.

This recipe was so simple and easy to make. I added tuna to mine and my whole family loved it, even my picky eater ate her veggies that night. It was so good i'm adding it to my weekly family dinners. It's good enough to take to a family get together and get rave reviews!!
