    Kaarin's Note:

    Very creamy and a little cheesy. Great way to get kids to eat broccoli! This recipe is adapted from Taste of Home. You can use fresh or frozen broccoli in this.

      This was a very fast and easy recipe. I added about 3 cloves garlic, reduced the butter to about 2 tablespoons, sprinkled liberally with salt and mixed with 8 ounces fettucini. I used whole milk, and the results were very creamy and delicious. Although I could see why some people might prefer half-and-half, I wouldn't because I don't like the extra fat. I steamed the broccoli over the pasta while it was cooking. In 5 minutes it was tender but still very green in color. Great recipe!

      Kids love it! I actually puree my broccolli after steaming and incorporate in the sauce before pouring over the noodles...for the kids sake. Great way to get them to eat up their veggies. I do add garlic as others have suggested and am very liberal with the salt otherwise it is kinda bland. It is a great starter recipe that you could add all kinds of things to...sauteed onions, mushrooms, red pepper flakes, cubed ham, whatever you'd like. Definetely a staple in my house!

      This recipe was great! I had pasta already cooked, and I had a couple of heads of broccoli to use. Since I wasn't home I left the recipe for hubby to make, figuring it wasn't a difficult recipe (and he's pretty good in the kitchen). Instead of steaming the broccoli, he sauteed it, and then added the sauce and the pasta. The kids liked it! For our portions, we added some sauteed sausage. This was a quick, easy recipe with items I usually have on hand, which makes it perfect!
