I’m super excited to announce that I have partnered with Challenge Dairy for the next year, to bring you some amazing new and tasty recipes featuring their high quality dairy products such as their creamy butter and their new smooth and silky cream cheese!
If you’re looking for a quick any easy dinner recipe that your whole family will devour, then you’re going to love this 20 minute Creamy Alfredo Broccoli Mac and Cheese!
Lately I’ve been in a “new-dinner-recipe-zone.” My mind can’t stop thinking about making new tasty dinner recipes, and this one is just another one that is quick, totally easy and bowl-licking good.
If you’ve ever been nervous to make your own alfredo sauce, don’t be! It’s actually incredibly easy to make, and with the help of the creamy Challenge Butter and Cream Cheese, this alfredo sauce it beyond silky and the perfect coating for some swirly macaroni noodles.
This whole meal literally takes less than 20 minutes to make, that’s why I’m sticking this recipe in my 15 minute dinner recipes category. With school back in session (for you guys at least), you totally need an arsenal of easy recipe to squeeze in between homework, soccer practice and those pesky PTA meetings.
Am I right?!
The sauce is quickly made in one skillet, while the pasta boils away in another pot.
I used frozen broccoli for this recipe because it’s already chopped and partially cooked, making it a super easy toss-in-veg. You could toss in other veggies like peas, carrots, or red bell peppers for a little pop of color and added nutrition too.
A nice crusty french bread would pair nicely with this creamy and cheesy pasta dish!
I’m sharing the full recipe for this Creamy Alfredo Broccoli Mac and Cheese over on the Challenge Dairy website, so I hope you’ll hop on over and grab it!
Trust me, you’ll want this one!!
