Fettucine With Ground Beef And Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Sauce

When I joined The Secret Recipe Club, my first post was a slight let down, as the person I was assigned did not bother to come along and comment on my post. Well, déjà vu struck when I moved to group C, and my assigned blogger not only did not comment, she did not post! But, I am loving my new group and I have met so many great new bloggers. This month, Mother Thyme is my assignment – don’t you just love that blog name? Jennifer looks like the person whose home you could arrive at unannounced, and she would welcome you in with pleasure. She is a stay at home mum of twins who uses their down down time to create wonderful dishes using fresh ingredients that we can all afford.

As Dave and I are on a restricted diet, I am now making pasta once a week, and I want it to be a special dish. I chose her recipe for Steak Fettucine With Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Sauce as rib eye steak is my favourite cut of meat. However, after shopping for all the ingredients, we ended up eating the rib eye for dinner the next evening. I could not get another rib eye steak and so I had to decide whether to adapt the recipe, or choose another one. At the same time, Dave and I were booking our trip to Venice, and my mind turned to traditional Italian meals. They always start with anti pasti and then move on to the primi of pasta and then secondi of meat and vegetables. So, I decided that as we had already had the second course, I would change up the recipe by making a first course pasta with a sauce of ground beef and follow the rest of Jennifer’s instructions. We loved the result.

Fettucine With Ground Beef And Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Sauce
 
Ingredients
  • 200g fettuccine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus olive oil for drizzling – I use an olive oil spray
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 250g ground beef
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper for seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 medium orange pepper, cut into large wedges
  • 1 medium red pepper, cut into large wedges
  • ½ cup crème fraîche
  • ½ cup grated hard cheese, plus additional for serving
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 220° Celsius and put your water for the pasta on to boil
  2. Cook the pasta as per the packet instructions
  3. Heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté the onion and the garlic until soft
  4. Add the ground beef and brown
  5. Season to taste and add the Worcestershire sauce
  6. Leave the meat to cook while you start on the peppers
  7. Place the peppers onto a baking sheet and lightly drizzle with olive oil
  8. Lightly season and roast for 15 minutes until they are tender and slightly charred
  9. Remove from the oven and blend until smooth
  10. Add to the ground beef together with the crème fraîche
  11. Adjust the seasoning and just before your pasta is ready, add the cheese to the ground meat
  12. Stir in allowing the cheese to melt completely before adding the drained pasta
  13. Mix together and serve topped with some grated hard cheese

  9. I’m so sad that you had such bad luck with SRC, hopefully no more. The recipe looks wonderful, definitely more economical with minced meat! If you are limiting yourself to pasta once a week I think you made an excellent choice for your pasta dish.
