Originally this recipe called for Canadian bacon. Of course, I had to omit that for my family and we love it as written below. But you could add strips of Canadian bacon to plates for family members who can eat red meat or add some chopped cooked turkey bacon and everyone can enjoy it.
2 cups chopped broccoli (1 large bunch)
8 oz. fettuccine (I tend to use about 3/4 of a pound for 4 main dish servings)
2 tablespoon butter
2/3 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 cups+ freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Cook fettuccine according to package directions, drain, and set aside.
Cook broccoli in microwave on high for 5 minutes or until desired tenderness.
Melt butter in a large skillet. Stir in broccoli and cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Add whipping cream, salt, and pepper; cook until warm. Add fettuccine, then parmesan cheese, tossing gently. Serve immediately with additional parmesan cheese if desired.
