Tequila Lime Fettuccine

Tequila Lime Pasta inspired from California Pizza Kitchen.

Ingredients & Procedure:
Pick a pasta of your choice (spinach fettuccine,
garlic linguine, penne etc...
or mix 2 pastas which is always fun and cool) 
Boil the pasta, rinse with cold water and set aside.
In a  pan- melt some butter (about 2 TBS)
Cut and saute some diced onions (maybe 1/4 of onion),
1-2 garlic cloves minced up, fun colored bell peppers &
1 jalapeno pepper  Next, add in 1/2 cup chicken stock.
Once all the onions have cooked up nicely almost to the
point of browning add 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves,
a splash of Tequila, 1 TBS lime juice, 2 TBS of soy sauce.
Once everything has cooked and mixed well...
pour in the already cooked pasta with a cup of cream.
(heavy, light or half & half)   Cook for a few minutes on
low heat so the cream heats up and everything is
mixed well together because you were using your
stirring/tossing skills with preferably a tong.
Serve with a lime wedge and a couple
cilantro leaves as a garnish.
