You can find more breakfast recipes in Erin’s latest book The $5 Dinner Mom Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook.
1 lb. pasta
2 cups carrots, sliced
2 cups asparagus, cut in 1 inch lengths
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add pasta, carrots, and asparagus. Cook for 10 minutes or until pasta is al dente. Pour off water.
Add enough Alfredo Sauce to coat the pasta and vegetables.
Alfredo Sauce Ingredients:
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cornstarch (or 2 T. flour)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 cup Mozzarella cheese (or 3/4 cups mozzarella and 1/4 cup parmesan)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon fresh parsley (or 2 teaspoons dried)
dash of pepper
Melt butter in a medium sauce pot. Once the butter is melted add cornstarch. Stir until smooth. Cook over a medium-high flame until the mixture is smooth and bubbly, stirring constantly.
Add milk slowly, stirring until well blended. Add broth, cheese, garlic powder, parsley and pepper. Stir over a medium flame, until cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
Spoon sauce over pasta and vegetables and mix to thoroughly coat.
