Boba Fett-uccine

Nerd Night!

Tonight's dish is a simple fettuccine recipe from Wookie Cookies: A Star Wars Cookbook, with the punny name of Boba Fett-uccin. Because seriously what goes better with pasta than a little galactic bounty hunting?! Nothing, that's right!

The recipe was good (though, the recipe wasn't really necessary). We eat a lot of baked pasta around here and are trying to ease off of that. This is a much lighter dish with steamed vegetables mixed in with a tomato pasta sauce (we went canned on that). The recipe called for broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini. In the future we will cut out the cauliflower and replace it with something else because neither of us really care for it all on its own.

We will revisit this dish again in the future. It is very simple and including prep only took 20-30 minutes from start to finish. A great easy meal for a week night after a long day of work whether that be librarianing or hunting down the dredges of the Coruscant underworld.




Quality testing the fettuccine.





Of course you must top it with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

  3. I think calling this one "nerd night" is redundant...just saying...
