This one really didn't work for me. The sauce was very thin and floury. I do normally make alfredo sauce with skim milk, but I think this recipe doesn't have enough flour to thicken, and/or it doesn't really get hydrated with this mixing order. Lauralie41's mixing order probably would be better.

Nice fettuccine alfredo recipe! I added the flour to my pan and than added the milk and chicken broth whisking until thickened. Liked the idea of cooking the broccoli in the pot with the noodles. Easy and quick to make and tastes very good.
