    Lennie's Note:

    Finally, finally! I finally found an alfredo sauce recipe that doesn't use cream and still tastes good! I have concocted this dish with shrimp and broccoli, but do use the sauce anytime you want a creamy alfredo-type sauce; it's very good and very versatile. And the sauce can be prepared while the pasta cooks; even better!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put on a large pot of salted water to boil; when boiling, cook penne till al dente stage and drain well.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, wash and trim broccoli (or just use frozen), slice into bite size pieces and florets, and microwave until crisp-tender, about 3 or 4 minutes; drain well and set aside.
    3. 3
      Have cooked shrimp waiting in the fridge.
    4. 4
      In a large heavy saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
    5. 5
      Whisk in flour, then gradually whisk in milk and stock; keep whisking to ensure the mixture has no lumps.
    6. 6
      When sauce comes to a boil, stir in parmesan cheese; when thoroughly combined, stir in broccoli and shrimp.
    7. 7
      Let mixture come back to a bubbling simmer, then let simmer for 1 or 2 minutes-- just long enough for the shrimp to warm up.
    8. 8
      Add freshly ground black pepper to taste, and stir.
    9. 9
      Turn off heat, stir in well-drained pasta, and pour mixture into an attractive serving bowl; serve hot.

      This is so good! I used a 410 gm tin of lite evaporated milk and 1 cup of chicken stock (instead of broth) We couldnt believe how creamy the sauce was and didnt find it greasy at all. Great colours with the broccoli and shrimp too, a definite winning recipe Lennie. Thanks for posting. =)

      I found the sauce very greasy and not much flavor. Needs allot of work.
