Alfredo Pasta w/ chicken and broccoli


  • 1 pound pasta (I used penne)
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 small bunch of fresh broccoli
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded or cubed chicken

Preparation Instructions

Cook pasta according to package directions.  When it's almost done, add the broccoli.  Cook until desired tenderness.
In a saucepan or skillet, warm butter and cream. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Grate Parmesan cheese and place half of it into a large serving bowl. Pour warm butter/cream mixture over the top.
Drain pasta and broccoli and immediately pour it into the bowl.  Add chicken.
Toss a couple of times, then sprinkle in the other half of the Parmesan.
Toss to combine, thinning with pasta water if necessary.
