Celebrate Memorial Day with a pasta dish made with Ronzoni® Homestyle™ Fettuccine. It is delightful!

If you haven’t tried the Ronzoni brand, you need to head over to Publix and buy Ronzoni Homestyle Pasta. It comes in two different shapes; penne, and fettuccine. Both are so delicious, versatile and perfect for including in your weekly menu and the upcoming Memorial Day festivities.

Ronzoni Homestyle Pasta has only two ingredients: high-quality semolina wheat flour, and fresh eggs. That is why I chose this pasta brand to make the delicious homestyle fettuccine with asparagus, preserved lemons, olive oil, and garlic.

The Ronzoni Homestyle Pasta has high-quality semolina wheat flour, and fresh eggs.

A simple dish with few ingredients served hot or at room temperature and an excellent addition to a summer time menu. It is flavorful, with a light texture, citrus notes, and a perfect balance.

Ronzoni Homestyle Pasta won the BrandSpark International 2019 Best New Product Award, which makes it a winner in my list too so that I can make an award-winning dish also.

Now if you love a thick and hearty pasta I recommend Ronzoni® Thick and Hearty™ Spaghetti or Penne. Showcasing a bronze die thick cut that allows the sauce to fill the nooks and cranny’s of the pasta and not the bowl!

Using fresh asparagus, garlic, spices, and preserved lemons to create this homestyle fettuccine at home

The Thick and Hearty option is perfect for a chunky marinara or a creamy sauce. Just add Parmesan cheese and are you are in for a yummy bowl of goodness, leaving no sauce on the plate. You can find this pasta style at Publix too!

Cooking the best Homestyle Fettuccine with Asparagus Pasta Dish!

Blanching the asparagus first to keep the bright green color.

My family loves simple recipes and in my kitchen, I like cooking with quality ingredients. This fettuccine is one of the favorite meals that has won my family’s taste buds.

The fettuccini pasta is not heavy and has a homemade taste that everyone enjoys. Using fresh asparagus combined with garlic and preserved lemons elevates the dish to another level of yumminess.

Cooking the best pasta for the holidays. Using fresh ingredients. This is an easy recipe ready in a few minutes also.

Plus, I am topping off the dish with outstanding Parmesan cheese. This cheese has a nutty, mellow, sweet flavor that complements the fettuccine dish to perfection.

In order to preserve the asparagus’ gorgeous green color, I am blanching the veggie first and then adding it to the pasta once it’s cooked.

For extra notes of flavor, I am sautéing the garlic in extra virgin olive oil and seasoning the pasta with Mediterranean spices and a pinch of salt.

Nothing better than a homemade meal made with quality ingredients

I am also using preserved Meyer lemons. I enjoy this citrus a lot, so when it is in season I use the Mediterranean method of preserving lemons — using a canning jar, salt, and lemon juice.

The preserved lemons are all edible, including the pulp and the rind. Chopping some and adding them to the Homestyle Fettuccine brightens up the dish with a pleasant sour note, making the meal even more special.

Enjoy a delightful pasta for Memorial Day weekend

I have to confess, I love cooking but not spending too much time in the kitchen. I could prepare my pasta dough and make the pasta, but when there are already options that are made few quality ingredients, I do not see the need to prepare my own pasta dough.

That is the reason why I recommend Ronzoni Homestyle Pasta. It meets the criteria for a great pasta to use when cooking meals at home. You get fantastic results and perfectly cooked pasta while saving time in the kitchen too.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 package Ronzoni® Homestyle™ Fettuccine Pasta 8.8 ounces
  • 3 quarts boiling water

  • 4 cloves of garlic sliced
  • 1 pound green asparagus cut and blanched
  • 1/2 preserved lemon chopped
  • 1 teaspoon mediterranean spice mix with oregano, parsley, thyme, marjoram, salt, and black pepper

Instructions

  • In a pot add 3 quarts of water with salt. Once it comes to a boil, add the complete box of Ronzoni Homestyle Fettuccine Pasta. Cook the pasta for 10-15 minutes until al dente. Remove the water and temper with cold water to stop the cooking process. Set the cooked pasta aside.
  • Slice the garlic and chop the preserved lemon. Include the rind and the pulp of the lemon as both are edible.
  • In a sauté pan add the olive oil and let it warm. Sauté the garlic slices with the asparagus. Season with the Mediterranean spice mix, add the preserved lemons and add this to the fettuccine.
  • Mix the fettuccine with the ingredients gently and serve with freshly shredded Parmesan cheese.

Delicious. I love that you didn’t use all the heavy cream that fettuccine normally is made and looks light on the stomach.
