Browned butter makes this killer weeknight Parmesan fettuccine SO unbelievably flavorful! Roasted mushrooms and broccoli make it an entire vegetarian meal-in-one!
Can I be cliche and tell you that spring is basically the best season for ALL the best eats?
At least until summer rolls around and we gotta focus on using up the boatloads of tomatoes and zucchinis.
So I can somehow rationalize the fact that I’m eating this browned Parmesan fettuccine at only 8am??
But then again…anything with the words “browned butter” doesn’t really need rationalization or explaining does it? I thought not….
I also thought that throwing roasted broccoli + mushroom into our little deal kinda sealed the whole thing and made this clearly health food which means that it’s a 24/7 kinda deal.
Okay, so dinner is a literal breeze tonight, guys. It’s also vegetarian and trust me, the meat is just NOT needed here and I don’t care how much of a carnivore you are. The browned butter + Parmesan in this fettuccine makes it unbelievably flavorful and a mess of broccoli + mushrooms adds in all the healthy stuff you need.
You know what else you need? Just a big bowl of this Parmesan fettuccine asap. Preferably with your wine close by. Because Thirsty Thursday?? Go with it.
Also…I would personally prefer that you make this Parmesan fettuccine basically unrecognizable thanks to all the Parmesan you’re undoubtedly going to pile on top.
Spoiler alert: it’s going to be a lot and you’re going to love it a lot.
