Fettuccine with Carrots and Asparagus|Corpse Husband

     With Fall now upon us its time to start cooking some great tasting and colorful meals! (not that we don't other times, but you know what we mean).  This fantastic pasta dish is very easy to make and has a healthy side per it doesn't use really any unhealthy ingredients.  There is some heavy cream but we'll get to that later.  With bright orange and green colors this dish will make you feel like you are embracing the Fall season to its fullest!  We think you will really enjoy this dish and again it was not hard to make and only took a few ingredients!  Check it out and give this a try we think you will be pleased!

     With the Fall season here and the Halloween holiday approaching we also wanted to give a great shout out to another You Tuber!  Corpse Husband is a narrator that specializes in the horror field.  He does narrations on scary stories, true scary stories, some paranormal things and works very hard on his site making it professional and creative.  We wanted to give him our first shout out because he works very hard on his site, does a great job and interacts with his fans.  He replies and reads comments.  Does Q&A sessions and talked about his life outside YouTube.  Just an overall great person.  
Thanks Corpse Husband for all you do!

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Total Time: 35 Minutes

Serves 4

8-12 Asparagus Spears depending on thickness
2 Table Spoons Butter
2/3 Cup Heavy Cream
Lemon Zest- 1 Lemon's worth
Salt and Pepper- to taste
1 Ounce of lemon juice
1 Cup of Carrots, Carrot chips work great
1 lb of Fettuccine
Basil Leaves
Shaved Parmesan Cheese

Run Asparagus under cold water and dry.  Cut the bottom woody like ends off.
With a sharp knife cut the asparagus into diagonal pieces. 1/4 inch is good.
In a pan melt 2 table spoons of butter or heat up 2 table spoons of oil.
Add the asparagus and saute for 2 minutes.
Reduce the heat to low and salt and pepper for taste
Add the lemon zest and heavy cream. (You can void the cream if you would like)
Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the carrots.
After a minute add the pasta until cooked.
Remove about 2 ounces of the cooking water and set aside.
Drain your pasta and carrot mixture and place back in the pot.
Season with salt.
Pour the asparagus mixture over the pasta and mix, coating all the pasta.
Add some lemon juice and some of the cooking water to loosen if needed.
Add in a few basil leaves
Serve in a bowl or plate and on top add a few more basil leaves and garnish with shaved Parmesan cheese if you would like.

*Side Alteration, if you wanted to not use butter for the pan or heavy cream.  You can substitute it for olive or canola oil which is healthier.  The dish also won't be altered much.

     This dish is very delicious and makes a great fall meal.  It is very simple to make and is very colorful!  You can also not add in the butter, milk and cheese if you want to.  After we all tried this dish we all knew it would be a hit.  It has a great flavor and Fettuccine pasta is so often passed by.  The thicker noodle is nice to work with and its holds the flavor very well.  Make sure you  check out the video below and subscribe if you haven't yet to our channel for future content!

     We really hope you enjoyed this post and meal.  Per our Chef in the video you will see please also check out Corpse Husbands Links!  His information will be below! our video so be sure to check it out!  Good food mixed with some scary stories makes a fun night!  I would also recommend putting his stories on in the car if you and some friends are driving.  During a good long drive would be perfect for some scary stories!

     Also note when the season is over keep listening!  Scary stories don't just have to be told during October!  Its fun year round to gather some friends for spooky evening with food and horror!  Hey maybe we will collaborate some day!  (That is our narrator dreaming of course.)  We really enjoyed this post because we had fun and this being our first holiday season we wanted to branch out!  Also note if you found us because you follow Corpse Husband, stick around, maybe you are looking for a cooking site as well!  We would love to have you!
