Quick Pasta Alfredo with Broccoli

This is a quick, easy recipe with tons of flavor and versatility. It takes me about 15 minutes to make this meal which makes it an easy go-to recipe on busy nights. Not to mention this alfredo sauce is MUCH better for you than the regular kind!

As you can see, my toddler LOVES this…

  • 2 -4 garlic cloves (optional – I like to add about 3 or 4)
 Directions:
  • Boil the pasta until tender but not mushy.
