Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces Fettuccine Pasta
  • 2 Cups Fresh Broccoli Florets
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Place broccoli in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water, and cover. Cook until tender but still firm, about 2 to 6 minutes. Drain.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add cream, stirring with a whisk until blended.
