This is a Taste of Home recipe, and is super easy. It turns out delicious every time, but as it is calorically dense I usually save it for times when I've been running high mileage. I've also had good results using 1% milk and reduced fat cream cheese.
1 package (16 ounces) fettucine
1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup butter
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 package (10 ounces) frozen broccoli florets (I typically use fresh and just steam it prior to adding)
1/2 tsp salt
Cook fettucine according to package dierctions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the shrimp and garlic in butter until the shrimp turns pink. Remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, combine the cream cheese, milk, and parmesan; cook until cheeses are melted and smooth.
Cook broccoli and drain. Stir broccoli, shrimp, salt and pepper into cheese sauce; heat through. Drain fettuccine, top with shrimp mixture.
I know some of you don't like shrimp, but this could easily be made with chicken instead. Also, I like to add fresh sliced mushrooms to mine.
