Creamy Garlic Pasta with Broccoli

This creamy garlic pasta is an adaptation of a full cream and butter recipe that I found on the Cheese Pusher.  I have made some substitutions so that the fat content is reduced but the flavor is still great. 

Creamy Garlic Pasta with Broccoli

Creamy Garlic Pasta is full of flavor and Easy to Make

I’ve added broccoli to the recipe because I love pasta dishes with broccoli. Any veggie you like could be added. If you have fish eaters in your house, just separate their portion and add some cooked shrimp at the end.
