Fettuccine with Spinach & Mint

My son loves Pasta/Noodles...Cheesy, Full of Cream...mmmm....I too love them..like to eat anytime...
:-)
We recently had Fettuccine Alfredo at Olive Garden which my son loved a lot and thought I will give it a try with Spinach, Mint & some almonds too....
It was a rich recipe...I loved the way my son had it messing up his face with all green cream....here I go with the recipe.
Ingredients:
Fettucini - half a packet
Garlic - 2 cloves (crushed)
Onion - 1 (cut into small pieces)
Ginger - 1/2 tsp grated
Spinach - 1/2 cup
Mint - 1/4 cup
Almonds - 5 (ground)
Whipped cream - 1/2 cup
Parmesan Cheese - lots..jus' kidding ..1/2 cup
Pepper  - 1/2 tsp
Butter  -  1 tsp
Olive oil -  1 tsp
Salt to taste
Method:
Add Fettucini to a pan of boiling water that has salt and 1 tsp of olive oil and cook till tender. Drain it and keep aside.


Melt butter in hot pan, add onion, garlic, ginger. When turned brown, stir it with cut spinach & mint. 
When the spinach and mint are cooked, add ground almond, whipped cream. Stir constantly till the mixture thickens.


Season with salt to taste.
Remove the pan from the stove and add cheese.
Serve over hot pasta and sprinkle on pepper.
The yummy Fettucini is ready to be served!!!
