Creamy Seafood & Broccoli Alfredo!!! Yummmo!!! You know, it’s been quite awhile since my husband and I have had children at home. Having to worry about what I was going to feed the family when I got home from work was one of the many things that influenced me and lead me to where I am today. Creamy Seafood & Broccoli Alfredo is a quick and delicious choice for a busy weeknight that will satisfy your hungry family and is easy to whip together and put on the table! I love blogging about food and sharing yummy recipes that are easy to put together and don’t use a lot of unusual ingredients. This week’s recipe certainly fits the bill!Back In ‘the day’…
When the kids were little, I’d review the weekly sales ads and then come up with a menu for the week that was based on items I already had on hand and those items on sale that week. This would help me determine the weekly grocery list too and the weekly menu would be posted for everyone to see.
Since it’s that time of year again, and kiddos across the nation are back to school and hard at work learning and growing, I wanted to share that little bit of time saving advise that helped me so much!
Happy learning! Happy cooking! 🙂
This week’s recipe, Creamy Seafood & Broccoli Alfredo, is so creamy and yummy! And so, if you have ever been intimidated by the thought of cooking a delicious dish with Alfredo in it’s name, this is the recipe that will chase those doubts away for good! Easy, quick, creamy, delicious!
In order to begin creating this yummy deliciousness, caramelize the diced onion in butter! Because….isn’t everything better when you use butter?
Then add the minced garlic and melt the remaining butter and the cream cheese over medium heat….
Make sure you stir/whisk constantly to combine well and in order to prevent sticking. Then add the Parmesan cheese and milk….mmmmmmhmmm!!!! PS….for a creamier, richer sauce, you can substitute half & half for the milk.
And make sure your shrimp is fully cooked, de-veined with tails removed. To chop the imitation crab meat, I use a pastry blender instead of a food processor! It’s easy and keeps the great texture of the crab meat!
And then fold in the shrimp and crab meat so that all that yummy seafood is coated with the deliciousness of the creamy Alfredo sauce!
Cook the pasta and broccoli (see recipe), then drain…..
After adding together, stir pasta and broccoli mixture with creamy seafood Alfredo mixture and ENJOY!!!!! I topped this serving with more Parmesan cheese and a little bit of parsley! SOOOOO YUMMMY!!!!
In conclusion, I hope you all enjoy! I’d love to get your feedback! So, please feel free to leave your comments about this week’s recipe! Have a great week!
