Fettuccine Alfredo With Vegetables Recipe @pinch

This homemade Alfredo sauce is rich, creamy, and very thick. We love the minced garlic flavor in the sauce. Adding broccoli, tomatoes, and green onions gives the heavy pasta dish a bit of freshness. You could even add chicken or shrimp to this dish too. An easy weeknight pasta dinner. The photo shows the Fettucine sans broccoli. And the homemade sauce is super yummy and very rich. My husband gives it two thumbs up!

Ingredients :
  • 1 package(s) fettuccine noodles (12 oz)
  • - homemade creamy Alfredo sauce (see below)
  • 2 bunch(es) fresh broccoli
  • 1 - firm tomato
  • 2 - green onions
  • - black pepper
  • - fresh Parmesan cheese as a garnish
  • 1 stick(s) butter or margarine equivalent
  • 8 ounce(s) cream cheese

  • 1/2 cup(s) sour cream
  • 3 clove(s) fresh garlic
  • minced
  • - black pepper
  • 1/2 - lemon
Intructions :
  • Cook noodles according to package directions
  • or if you're inclined to do so
  • make your own. When noodles are done drain well.
  • Prepare fresh broccoli to be cooked. I always leave mine somewhat firm.
  • Prepare your other veggies... dice tomato neatly and chop up green onion. If using fresh garlic
  • chop that up too.
  • For the sauce
  • melt butter/margarine first. I use Best Life buttery spread as it has no trans fat or hydrogenated oils.
  • Then add in cream cheese and garlic.
  • Keep the heat on low to medium and stir constantly unless it will burn.
  • Add in sour cream and milk and wait until everything is well melted together.
  • Then add the cheese.
  • Once the cheese is thoroughly melted
  • add pepper to taste and a splash of lemon. Serve immediately.
  • Pile noodles on a plate or in a bowl. Toss on broccoli and then cover with sauce. Sprinkle diced tomato and green onion on top. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice on and garnish with cheese. Yum! ]
