This is one of our family favorites! Although it's pretty low in calories and fat (for fettuccine alfredo), it has plenty of flavor. This looks really good, too, so we make it sometimes when company comes. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Linguine with Spicy Shrimp
Very Good 4.4/5
(192 ratings)

We're serious about the spice in this recipe. Whole-grain pasta and tender shrimp pair perfectly with a luxuriously rich, piquant sauce.

Oven-Roasted Tomatoes
Very Good 4.5/5
(69 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I make a version of this with cherry tomatoes, olive oil and fresh basil. Bake them for 20 - 25 minutes in the oven or even on the barbecue. Tomatoes are one of the best foods you can eat because of their antioxidant properties which are enhanced when cooked.

This is variation on a Better Homes & Garden recipe. It tends to be a bit on the spicy side. If you are not a fan of the heat, cut back onthe horseradish and the red pepper.
