Morsels of Life - Spinach and Tuna Fettuccine Alfredo - A quick and easy (skinnier) Fettuccine Alfredo with Italian seasoned tuna and spinach.

I had a bag of spinach I needed to use up when I saw this recipe from Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. I've also had this recipe from Simply Recipes on my "to make" list for way too long! So what to do? Combine the two, of course! I know this Fettuccine Alfredo is a simplified version, but with the addition of spinach and tuna it works perfectly. I never knew Fettuccine Alfredo was so quick and easy. It's a recipe I've always put off making since I thought it'd be too complicated and time consuming. I should have known better after looking at a recipe, but sometimes preconceptions stay strong. For this Spinach Tuna Fettuccine Alfredo, you just mix in some tuna and Italian Dressing Seasoning in with the butter and pasta. Then, when it's mostly cooked, throw in the spinach, and you're ready to serve!

What are some recipe preconceptions you've held?
