Simple and Delicious Pasta Alfredo with Broccoli

  • Save

When it comes to quick and delicious, you can’t beat a homemade Alfredo sauce over pasta. It is great choice when you need a really satisfying meal in less than 30 minutes!

The pasta of the day will be egg noodles. I really like egg noodle pasta for this dish because the noodles remain light and fluffy even when they are soaked in that amazing cheese sauce. It is a great summer alternative to the traditional fettuccini, and it makes for a fancier looking plate.

This simple Alfredo sauce has two cheeses, Pecorino Romano and Ricotta and it makes a deliciously light creamy Alfredo sauce. Broccoli is my number one choice to add to this pasta dish because I love it so much! This makes a delicious side dish or serve it as the main meal. For a heartier meal, side this with grilled chicken, or try adding sautéed chicken right in the sauce as that works fantastically well!

Ingredients: Serves 4

  1. ½ bag of egg noodles or 6 ounces
  2. 1 garlic clove minced
  3. ½ cup butter
  4. ½ cup Pecorino Romano cheese + a little extra for garnish
  5. ½ cup ricotta cheese
  6. ½ cup heavy cream
  7. ¼ teaspoon salt
  8. ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  9. 2 cups of broccoli florets
  10. red pepper flakes ( optional garnish to kick it up a notch!)
