Skinny Broccoli Alfredo Pasta {recipe}

skinny broccoli alfredo

You might remember some of my favorite healthy pasta recipes from the past, like the Balsamic Chicken Pasta and the Kale Pesto Pasta.  I’m a firm believer that you should be able to eat whatever you want and stay healthy and fit, which is why I thoroughly enjoyed delicious broccoli Alfredo pasta for dinner the other night =)  I’m not a fan of the the standard creamy Alfredo sauce, so I made a few modificiations to the sauce…the result?  Skinny Broccoli Alfredo Pasta…

2 cups cooked broccoli

one cup cooked whole wheat linguini
