    Tastes just like the alfredo I buy which I LOVE. You need to use a ton of salt for the broccoli and sauce to all taste good. Alfredo is the best!

    I loved this recipe. I also added 2 cloves of garlic and should have added a third. I added grilled chicken to this dish and my whole family loved it. Will definitly be making this again.

    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!

    Super fast. Creamy but not overbearing. Kids gobbled it up. I sauteed 1 clove minced garlic with the butter, and added 1T cream. For adults, I threw in some chopped sundried tomatoes, which added a nice zing.
