Recipe For Fettucine With Ground Beef

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.

  1. Looks good and easy too! In fact I think I have most of these ingredients and a red pepper or two that I wasn’t sure what I was going to use for.

  2. Love the sound of this! And isn´t it funny that some people join in but then don´t join in…how odd. Very jealous about your trip to Venice, it´s one part of Italy I have not yet visited 🙁

    1. I am so looking forward to our trip – I might even get as obsessed as Dave is with pre planning to make sure we see EVERYTHING!

  3. Hi Tandy! So thrilled you liked this dish and that you choose it for SRC. I haven’t made it in some time and my husband keeps asking me to make it. Now that I see it here I am anxious to make it again!

  4. Tandy, this sounds yummy. I hope you enjoyed my post about your delicious venison dish. My whole family LOVED it. I shared the recipe with several other of my my husband’s hunter friends. It’s a big hit here in Georgia, USA!

  5. Looks so fantastic! There’s just something about meat, pasta, and cheese that I love! I love the orange peppers, I bet it adds a nice and fresh flavor!

  6. This looks delicious! I am sure it would be great either way, both with steak or ground beef. I want to come to your house for pasta night, you have so many yummy recipes.

  7. I’ve always made my fettuccine and alfredo with shrimp, chicken. But I’ve never thought of adding ground beef with it. This dish is making my mouth water.. yes.. I love this.

  8. pasta once a week should be a great recipe.. this is it and as you say easy with available ingredients! Hope all the right people pop in this time! c

  9. Hello Tandy, I have also only made this dish with shrimp before but the idea of having beef and cream fresh and cheese together is wonderful! Enjoy this once a week indulgence. Take care, BAM

  10. I think it’s pretty awful not to comment on the person’s blog who was assigned to you OR to whom you were assigned. Why do it, then?

    Well, it sounds like you lucked out this time because this pasta looks great!

  11. This looks like such a fun pasta recipe! I enjoy being in two different groups with you!

  12. 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.

  13. I love it when food recipes use easy to find ingredients that don’t cost a fortune!! I’m a little lazy when it comes to cooking and like making easy recipes! This looks pretty amazing!! Can’t wait to try it out!

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will only be visible once I reply)
