We have a tradition of cooking a special meal when we decorate our Christmas tree. It began the first year we started dating and we’ve managed to keep the tradition going every year since. This year I was inspired to make Christmas fettuccine by the blog theKitchn. Have you seen the move The Holiday? There’s a great scene in the movie that talks about Christmas fettuccine. I was never quite sure what Christmas fettuccine was so when I read the posting on theKitchn I thought it was the perfect recipe for us this year.
This is a very decadent and delicious pasta dish. What I liked most about this dish is it was a perfect Christmas dinner for two people, albeit a little untraditional. The braising step could be done in advance and then kept warm in the oven until you’re ready to make the sauce. Or you could start the recipe before you trim your tree and finish the sauce when you’re done.
