Fettuccine with Meatballs and Shaved Soffritto and Fresh Herbs
This dish has all of the comforting flavors of chicken noodle soup, but with a much more interesting combination of ingredients. This fettucine makes use of one of our favorite "cooking synergies", the mirepoix. Onions, carrots and celery combine to form a complex yet familiar base for tender fettuccini and perfectly seared beef meatballs while parsley gives the dish a bright, herbaceous taste and oregano adds that "I've been cooking this for hours" flavor. Shaved vegetables and grated Parmesan make for a beautiful presentaion. Oh, and did we mention that this recipe comes together in a single pot?! Easy kitchen clean up for the win!
