Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo

I swam competitively in middle school through high school. One year I was 10 hours from home at a swim meet. My 13 birthday was that weekend and my teammates threw a surprise birthday party for me. My entrance was not great...when everyone yelled SURPRISE..I threw up.

Yep, everywhere.

Turns out I had some bad fettuccine alfredo and I had food poisoning. Ugh. It was so bad. So for the longest time after that, I was not able to eat fettuccine alfredo.

Enter now...that man Alfredo is entering back into my life! I mean by birthday is tomorrow. It has only taken 14 years for me to over come this!

Plus I already told you how grown up I was with all my craving of broccoli! haha!


Ingredients:

1 chicken breast/some olive oil
1/2 box of fettuccine pasta
2 cups of frozen broccoli, thawed
2 cloves of minced garlic
2/3 cup of heavy cream
2/3 cup of milk
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese


Directions:


Bring a large pot of water to boil and boil fettuccine pasta according to box instructions. Drain pasta.

Cook broccoli. I steam it in my microwave either according to package instructions (if it is in a steamable package) or about 3 minutes in a container with 1/2 inch water in the bottom of the container.

Coat chicken breast with some olive oil and grill until cooked through (about 4 minutes each side) or just use some precooked chicken. Once cool, shred or slice chicken into thin strips.

In a large pan, add garlic, heavy cream, and milk. Stir till hot and bubbly, then add cheeses and stir until melted.

Add in pasta and coat. Add in broccoli until coated.

Serve and enjoy immediately!


I hope you are all wishing no one gets sick for my birthday. Maybe then I can go home from work early! Here is to another happy and healthy year!
