I had pasta, ground grass fed beef, and fresh broccoli on hand so when I searched these ingredients- this recipe popped up. Luckily I had some Alfredo sauce. I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I browned the beef in sauteed onions and garlic. Then steamed broccoli. I added it all together with the Alfredo sauce and some additional cheese and spices for flavor. I'm winning with this quick dinner tonight!
I had all the ingredients on hand to make pasta alfredo, but wanted to add a little more "ooomph" to dinner. This recipe was just what I was looking for and the results were a big thumbs up from my family. Although I didn't follow the recipe exactly, I don't think it affected the overall taste (hence the review). For alfredo sauce, I used Recipe #76 and cooked pasta (whole grain linguini) separately. Then, I steamed the broccoli and added to the ground beef mix. I didn't have any italian cheese, but found the parmesan used in alfredo sauce was enough to satisy our tastebuds...next time, I'll try adding some in. Forgot the chopped tomatoes (ok considering diced tomatoes are usually a deal breaker for DS and DD). It tasted great even without tomatoes, as kids (ages 15 and 5 gobbled it down and requested 2nds.) Thanks for the recipe!!
