Provolone and Broccoli Alfredo
photo by Satyne
- Ready In:
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 200 g provolone cheese, shredded
- 1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash tomato basil garlic seasoning
- 500 g broccoli, cut into small bite sized florets
- salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 250 g penne pasta
- Begin by cooking the pasta according to package directions (please note, if you plan on adding penne to the sauce, you might want to cook the penne just under the suggested cooking time, as it will continue to cook and absorbe some of the sauce once added).
- In a non-stick pan sauté the broccoli in a little butter until the broccoli is tender crisp.
- In a medium non-stick saucepan, over a low flame melt butter and stir in flour.
- Add cream and milk, turn up the heat and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and thickens slightly.
- Stir in Parmesan, Provolone, Mrs Dash Tomato, Basil& Garlic Seasonings and stir until cheese is melted and the sauce is throughly heated and creamy smooth.
- Now, you can do one of two things.
- You can add the broccoli to the sauce, toss to coat and serve over hot cooked penne or you can add the broccoli and the penne to the sauce, toss to coat (my choice) then serve while still steaming.
- Either way, enjoy your meal!

Someone who tried it said that this is the best pasta they've had in years! Very nice recipe, and yes, it IS incredibly easy to make. I've made it 2x in less than a week by popular demand :) Since they don't sell Mrs. Dash where I live, I found a great Garlic Pepper Seasoning that worked perfectly with it. Also, as you can see in my picture, I added a can of white turkey meat (like the kind they sell in Sam's, Costco, etc.) and that made the dish feel more like a complete meal. It was great. Thanks, I'm not letting this one go for now!
