Cooking a simple and healthy dinner might seem hard to do but when you’re using pasta that cooks in only 3 minutes- yes just 3 minutes, it’s not as difficult as you might think! I make a delicious whole wheat garlic fettuccine Alfredo with just butter, shredded Parmesan and salt to taste and pair this with fresh steamed broccoli and everyone’s happy!

Need:

Boil the noodles as directed and yes they should be firm so don’t go beyond 3 minutes! While boiling the noodles steam the broccoli and melt the butter over the stove. Drain your noodles (don’t rinse them) saving a little of the hot water. Add butter and 1 ½ cups of shredded Parmesan and toss together gently adding a little of the hot steamy water from the boiling noodles, this will help to thin the sauce and melt the cheese. I save roughly ¼ cup of the hot water.  Gently mix until all of the noodles are covered with the butter and melting Parmesan.

This is not a creamy version but delicious nonetheless. Serve with steamed broccoli on top of the noodles and sprinkled with remaining Parmesan cheese. Add salt and pepper as desired. Serves 4-5 people and we almost never have left overs with this dish!

The whole wheat garlic pasta has 6 grams of fiber and includes ALA omega 3. A good for you pasta that tastes to die for, nobody will even complain that you’re making a whole wheat pasta, I promise! Thanks Al Dente® for making such healthy and great tasting noodles!
