Description

A fun twist on a traditional Alfredo sauce. Perfect easy weeknight meal!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Broccoli, Fresh Or Frozen
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 pinch Pepper
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • ½ cups Milk Or Cream
  • 1 cup Frank's Hot Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Seasoned Salt
  • 1-½ cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 ounces, weight Crumbled Blue Cheese, Plus More For Topping
  • 1 pound Italian Gigli, Or Other Short Or Long Cut Pasta

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 425ºF.

Toss the broccoli with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes or until it begins to brown and caramelize.

While the broccoli roasts, make the sauce. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the cream cheese and whisk until combined. Add the milk, hot sauce, and seasoned salt. Bring to a boil and then remove from heat. Stir in the cheddar cheese until melted. If needed, return to the stove to fully melt the cheese.

Toss in the blue cheese.

Boil pasta according the package directions. Before draining the pasta, reserve 1 cup of the pasta water. Place the hot pasta in a large serving bowl. Pour the sauce over the pasta and toss. If needed, add some of the pasta water to thin the sauce. Add the roasted broccoli and toss to combine.

Serve hot with extra blue cheese.
