Siraluun Fettuccine Alfredo

Rill's heart pounded in her chest. She thought it likely to leap right out through her armor but it did not. She ran swiftly across the plateau, racing against time. She and her companions had fought valiantly against the legions of the insect-like Olthoi. It took hours but they managed to recover the pieces of the broken bells that would give them access to the Queen's lair. Of course ringing the bells would cause the menhir stones to crack, allowing the olthoi to swarm...but that's when their queen would be most vulnerable. Defeating her would leave her armies mindless and wandering. It would bring peace once again to the island of Marae Lassel.

Rill reached her destination as the sun reached the horizon in the west. The last set of the menhir stones were there as well as the stone's Aun guardian. She had not heard the tolling of the bells from the other parts of the island while she ran so it was not yet time to hand her bell to the Aun. Gratefully, she sat down to catch her breath and rest.

From the corner of her eye, she caught a glimpse of movement. She had just enough time to leap and roll to the side, as a great mass of brightly colored feathers and sharp claws tore through the air where she had just been. As she got to her feet and whirled to face the giant bird known as a Siraluun, Rill glanced at the Aun guardian to see if he would help. He stood immobile and impassive. She understood then that this would be her fight alone. She grinned, swinging her shield off her back and pulling her sword from the scabbard.

"Siraluun meat goes well with sauce and noodles," She said to the bird who circled her. It screeched at her.

"And there's always time for a good meal before a great battle." Rill leapt to attack...and had a delicious meal the night she killed the Olthoi Queen.

Siraluun Fettuccine Alfredo

8 Servings | Total Time: 20 min | Apprentice

  • 16oz Fettuccine Noodles 
  • 1/2 lb Snow Peas or Sugar Snap Peas
  • 2 Tbl Olive Oil
  • 1 Jar Alfredo Sauce
  • 2 Roma Tomatos (optional)
  • 2 cups Siraluun (or Chicken if you're out), cooked, shredded
Craft: Cook Fettuccine noodles according to package instructions. During the last 5 minutes of the cook time add Peas. Drain water carefully. Pour the noodles into a medium bowl. Add Olive Oil and mix. Pour Alfredo Sauce and shredded chicken into the pan you used to cook the noodles and warm them up over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Add the sauce and chicken to the bowl with the noodles. Chop tomatoes, remove seeds and add to the pasta. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.

Strategies: Lacking access to Marae Lassel for Siraluun meat, you can buy a Rotisserie Chicken from the Deli section of your grocery store. One chicken will give you 4-6 cups of shredded chicken which is useful in many meals. This meal makes great leftovers.

LFM: Caesar Salad goes really well with this pasta dish. To save time, you can buy a Caesar salad kit in the produce section of your local grocery store!
