Dinner Last Night: Fettuccine with Asparagus, Green Peas, and Tarragon

Thank you pinterest for providing me with constant dinner inspiration!  Another pin-turned-reality, fettuccine with asparagus, green peas, and tarragon!  I have been feeling like I haven't been eating enough veggies lately, so this was the perfect way to add vegetables to my usual dinner staple of pasta.  The sauce is similar to a roux (but less fattening) and gives a nice creamy base to the dish, plus the breadcrumbs added a satisfying crunch.  

All in all - worth making again.  I can always tell when a dish is a success when my husband exclaims, "Dinner?  GOOD!"a la Joey from Friends.  

Side Note: In case you were wondering, the recipe stories I post in "dinner last night posts," are the success stories, a.k.a. the good recipes, worth your time to repeat!  I wanted to clarify just in case I was sending the illusion that I'm an amazing cook who always gets every recipe right.  Negative!  I do have my failures and mishaps in the kitchen like everyone else.  I just choose to not blog about the mishaps or sub par dinners... I figure it'll save everyone time. Why try out a recipe that's not worth repeating, right?

This looks DELISH! I am going to have to make this one for my husband. It's perfect because he is not a meat eater! Love the crushed bagette over it all. Yum! Loved your side note by the way. ( :

Looks delish! I agree. Why post your failures (unless it's really funny)? Just let people know what's worth making.
