In a pan, add about 1tsp of olive oil, add fresh garlic if you like. Add the brocolli stems to this and saute for a min. Don't cook this a lot -the brocolli has to be crisp but cooked. When that is done, add the alfredo sauce to this and cook for a min. I don't add too much sauce - enough to just coat
Here comes the best part - adding the spices.
Add these things below - if you don;t have any of these - add red chilli powder and some garam masala or fresh mint or fresh spinach - those add a lot of flavor and taste too.
Add about 1/2 - 1 tsp of each and mix well with the pasta. Add salt to taste if you require it. The last ingredient is the kicker - I add a lot of it - red chilli flakes. Love it!
Tada - here's your quick pasta.
This is definetly not a gourmet version of fettucine alfredo. But its a really good quick version with ready made ingredients. A better version of this is with fresh herbs - fresh basil and fresh oregano and fresh parsley and lots of red chilli flakes! And grated fresh parmesan on top! Yummm..
