This fabulous fettuccine from Phyllis Ciardo of Albany, California is extra cheesy and nicely seasoned with herbs. No one would guess it's lower in fat than the traditionally rich and creamy Italian restaurant specialty.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 29, 2012

This was disappointing. I love blue cheese but the recipe doesn't showcase its flavour. It's eggy and dull - needs lots more character than it has.
