Creamy Broccoli Alfredo Pasta

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

I love Italian food. Especially pasta dishes. To me, it seems like you can prepare plain pasta with tomato sauce or a more gourmet pasta dish with veggies and chicken. I have done my time with buying different types of pasta sauce - especially Alfredo. I love Alfredo pastas because it is so creamy and has a different taste than the more sour-base of tomato sauce. But I hate store bought Alfredo sauce. So here is the version I make at home - easy and delicious! Enjoy!
