Self Experiments: Four Cheese Fettuccine with Mushrooms @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

This is a fresh series that I am starting to include in my Food Blogs. It is all about our attempt to cook some of our favourite dishes at home. This time, we tried to make Four Cheese Fettuccine with Mushrooms. I shall be posting our recipes and cooking methods here just in case anyone would love to try them at home.

My Brother Slicing The Button Mushrooms
Ingredients are as follows:

1 Package (16 ounces) uncooked Fettuccine

3 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

3 Tablespoons of Lightly Salted Butter

2 Medium Green Onions, Chopped

2 Cloves of Garlic, Diced

1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Parsley

1 Large Can of Button Mushrooms

1/2 Cup Ricotta Cheese

1/2 Cup Crumbled Feta Cheese

3/4 Cup Shredded Asiago Cheese

3/4 Cup Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese

2 Cups of Mushroom Soup

1/2 Teaspoon Pepper

Draining The Water From The Fettuccine
Cooking Directions:

Cook and drain the Fettuccine as per the instructions on the package. Add a dash of Salt and some Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Stirring In Low Heat
Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet or a pan, heat oil and butter over medium heat. Cook onions, garlic and 1 tablespoon parsley in oil mixture about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender.

Then add the Mushroom Soup and stir gently. Reduce heat to low. While stirring, add the sliced Button Mushrooms. Cook for about 2 minutes.

Then stir in Ricotta and Feta Cheeses; ensure that the heat is on low. Cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until cheeses are melted.

All Ready To Be Served

Finally add the cooked Fettuccine, Asiago and Parmesan Cheeses and Pepper to mixture in a skillet. Cook about 4 minutes, tossing gently, until cheeses are melted and fettuccine is evenly coated. Sprinkle with parsley.

It is important not to overcook the cheeses in the pan to prevent sticking and burning. 

This generally takes approximately 25 minutes to cook and is good to serve 6 pax. 

Generally a simple preparation which tastes great. This was our first attempt and thankfully, it came out well. Hoping to try out more recipes soon and shall post them here.
