Seafood Fettuccine Bake RECIPE

This recipe was contributed by Shirley Cline.

Shirley was a great inspiration when I first started working on the idea of creating a recipe and cooking web site. Not only did she encourage me but she also supplied a great many recipes and other pieces which are featured throughout the site. Her great achievement was to teach me to cook risotto over the internet!

Although I never had the chance to meet Shirley, or even talk to her, I regarded her as a good friend. It was with great sadness that I learnt that she passed away in Autumn 2004 and that there would be no more emails. I think she will be sadly missed by a lot of people like me to whom she gave such pleasure with the sharing or her recipes. The pleasure my children have had from her recipe for Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar and Mint - not to mention the fights for seconds - has been a joy to behold.

Ingredients

1 small pkg. fine noodles
1 - 2 lbs. shrimp or crabmeat
3 medium onions, finely chopped
4 celery stalks, finely chopped
1 medium bell pepper, finely chopped
2 Tblsp. garlic, minced
3/4 lb. butter
1/2 - 3/4 cup Romano & Parmesan cheeses mixed
1 (8 oz.) block Velveeta cheese
1/3 bottle Hot Sauce (or to your own taste)
1 quart of 1/2 & 1/2

These spices are season to taste:
1/8 tsp. rosemary
1/8 tsp. oregano
1/8 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. black pepper
1/3 tsp. salt

Method
  • In a regular pasta boiling pot, boil noodles with salt. Drain and set aside. DO NOT OVERCOOK noodles as they will be baked.
  • In a saucepan, saute onions, celery, bell peppers and garlic in butter and a little olive oil until clear, about 10 - 15 minutes.
  • Add seafood, seasoning and hot sauce, simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Put Velveeta and other cheeses in the pot, stirring until melted.
  • Add some of the cream, stirring until smooth.
  • Put noodles in a baking dish and pour mixture over noodles while mixing in the rest of the cream.
  • Season to taste, may need more spices (above) to you own taste. This is the time to add more before baking.
  • Bake at 350ºF in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes.

Note:

I always add more cheese along with a little more cream to make it richer. I also use fresh shrimp and crab together - if you do mix them, don't add the crab until the last 3 - 5 minutes.
