Supper Super Fast

Say that three times fast. :)
This is PERFECT for the night you need dinner in less than 20 minutes.
Thats as long as this takes! I just altered THIS original recipe.

Picture (

Green Veggie Fettuccine

12 oz. Whole Wheat Pasta (your choice)
1 Package of Frozen Lima Beans (about 1 1/2 c)
1 C Chopped Mushrooms
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 C Frozen Peas
2 Leeks:
(they look sort of like celery, taste like an onion) - just use the white and light green parts only.
Kosher salt and Black Pepper
3/4 C Low Fat Evaporated Milk
1 Tbl Whole Wheat Flour
2 Tbl chopped Fresh Tarragon (I used 1 tbl of dried)
1/4 C Parmesan

-Cook Pasta. Last 3 minutes of pasta cooking time, throw in Peas and Lima Beans.
- Add 2 tsp of Olive Oil to pan. Let it heat up a bit. Cute Leeks into half moons, and RINSE WELL! Add Leeks. Cook until softened slightly. (4-5 minutes). Add mushrooms and garlic. (You can add a little water if pan is too dry) Cook until leeks and mushrooms are pretty soft. (about 3 minutes more)
-Sprinkle with Flour and mix for about 20 seconds. Add Evaporated Milk and turn heat to med. Let it heat up and thicken. (the time depends) When the sauce has thickened to desired consistency add the strained pasta and veggies. (if the sauce seems to thick, and a little milk)
-Stir in Tarragon and Parmesan, S and P and serve! ENJOY!
