2
medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)

  • 2 While fettuccine is cooking, place milk, Creole seasoning and bell peppers in blender or food processor. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth.

“Snip” green onions with a scissors directly over the cooked fettuccine. You won’t dirty an extra knife or cutting board!
