Caution: unhealthy recipe ahead. Continue at your own risk! This is the classic, creamy, full-fat comfort dish that we all know and love. As spring will soon be here, and if you’re like us, hoping to eat a bit healthier, I am trying to post the last of the cold weather comfort food dishes that we’ve eaten recently. So back to this fettuccini dish. I attempted to make it a little healthier by adding broccoli. We rarely eat dishes like this. But sometimes, you just need a big plate of pasta with cream sauce! This is quick and easy (and much cheaper than if you ordered at a restaurant!) to make at home for a busy weeknight dinner! Of course we all ate and enjoyed this!
