Who doesn’t like Fettuccine Alfredo? Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who isn’t a lover . I mean, what’s to not like. It’s creamy, cheesy, and delicious, and, slurpy fettuccine noodles are just plain fun to eat.

This version of fettuccine Alfredo with broccoli is one among my favorites because it’s meatless, so Meatless Monday approved, it’s made with half and half instead of cream , so you don’t got to be rolled faraway from the table after eating it, and it takes almost zero time and energy to form .
