Lemon Herb Fettuccine

Lemon Herb Fettuccine

Fresh ingredients make a world of different in any dish—even simple ingredients like olive oil, lemons, and herbs. The cuisine of Rome, where fettuccine originated, prides itself on fresh, seasonal ingredients that taste delicious for their quality—not their complexity.
