Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

This versatile side dish is a variation of a recipe I've had for years. Instead of broccoli, you can use green beans, carrots or your family's favorite vegetable. You can even add cubed cooked chicken and turn it into a main dish.—Robin Stevens, Cadiz, Kentucky
