Rich and Creamy Fettucine


5 garlic cloves, crushed
3 slices of onion, chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil
8 oz egg substitute
5 tbsp. fat-free Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 pound fettuccine
Salt and pepper to taste


Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil until onion is tender and transparent. Do not brown garlic.

Mix egg substitute with basil, parsley, and Parmesan cheese. Combine the two mixtures in the largest mixing bowl you have in the kitchen and add salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare fettuccine according to package directions. Drain fettuccine and immediately put wet, hot pasta in the large mixing bowl over the egg/cheese/onion/garlic/basil/parsley mixture and toss thoroughly. The hot, wet pasta will cook the eggs and melt the cheese, creating a rich, creamy sauce.
