rinsed broccoli cut into bite-size pieces
1 package of pasta
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
dash of pepper
While broccoli is steaming and pasta is cooking (I steam the broccoli over the cooking pasta) melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour and pepper until smooth. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Remove from heat and add parmesan cheese. Stir until melted. Pour alfredo sauce over broccoli and serve. Optional: serve over cooked chicken breasts for Chicken Alfredo.
I quadruple this recipe for the 5 of us with a small amount left over.
