Yummy way to get your kids to eat broccoli!
1 tbls of kosher salt
¾ of pound of fettuccine pasta
4 cups of broccoli florets
4 tbls of butter
1 cup parmesan cheese
Freshly ground black pepper
Place salt in boiling water and add fettucine to cook to al dente. During the last 3 minutes of cooking, add broccoli. Drain in colander reserving 1 cup of the water. Place butter in the pot and stir until melted. Add ½ cup of the water and 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese. Add the fettuccine and broccoli and toss to coat. Remove from heat and add the remaining cheese. Serve and add more cheese if desired!
***I changed the recipe a little when I made it: I used half and half instead of the pasta water to make it a little creamier - if you don't need those calories you could use regular milk also or a combination of milk and pasta water - just play with it and see how you like it! I also got some chicken breast tenders, seasoned them with oregano, basil and garlic salt and cooked them in some butter and olive oil and served them on top of the pasta - it was really yummy!****
