Miraculous Bruschetta Fettuccini

I forgot how good a tomato can be.

For years my childhood memories of sweet, juicy summertime tomatoes have felt so distant.  I pretty much gave up on them.  What happened to that tomato that you could eat and savor plain?  Were store-bought tomatoes always as bland as they are now?

For a moment my memories came alive as I rediscovered how a real tomato should taste.

These were fresh from the garden.  As I enjoyed them, the accompanying food was a mere distraction.  I became inspired to play to this vegetable’s fruit’s strengths and showcase these perfectly miraculous tomatoes.

What did I end up with?

Miraculous Bruschetta Fettuccine

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 2

Ideal Protein: Phases 1, 2, 3, 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 large garlic cloves, finely chopped (2 if you love garlic!)
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 cups chopped garden fresh tomatoes (any type works)
  • 1 package Miracle Noodle Fettuccini
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

Directions:

  1. Combine oil, garlic, and 1/2 tsp. salt in a large bowl. Chop the tomatoes and stir into oil mixture. Let stand about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Heat Fettuccini in a frying pan for 1 minute.  Add tomato mixture and toss in pan to coat noodles.  Place in serving bowl.  Add basil and toss.

*In Phase 4, it’s okay to add some shaved Parmesan to the mix!

Enjoy!

  1. I was so happy to learn about the Miracle Noodles, how perfect is that! I’m a pasta and rice lover and am currently on Phase 1 of my Protein Diet which doesn’t allow such things as pasta and rice. I love this and play to order some for myself. Thanks for sharing.

    • I know! I love these things because I love pasta too. I used to eat it almost nightly. MN make a great substitute. I hope Phase 1 is going well for you. It works wonders! 😉 Thanks for stopping by, and I hope some of these recipes help you enjoy what you get to eat.

  2. Yummy… it looks so good and I will do it this week 😀 I’ve recently started the Ideal Protein diet, and I love that it’s not very hard to follow it. Plus the recipes are really delicious. However, I think that the most important thing is to achieve our goals with the help of this kind of program!

    • Thanks, Ellen. Glad you found this helpful. My whole intent here is to help people to see that they can eat healthy foods that taste great, and develop a community where people can learn how to eat healthy Ideal Protein meals.
