Easy Recipe

Not too long ago, I told everyone about our household use of kefir. I use it in pretty much any recipe as a substitute milk, yogurt and sour cream. So, I thought it would be appropriate to show off one of the more popular items on my monthly menu. It is easy to make and well liked by all ages - so far.

Broccoli Fettucine:
1 bunch of broccoli
2 tbsp. margarine
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can chicken broth
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1 cup plain yogurt (or kefir)
6 cups cooked fettucine

1) cut up broccoli in bite size pieces and steam:2) saute onion and garlic in butter, add soup and pepper here;
3) add both cheeses, mix until melted;4) stir in yogurt (kefir), broccoli;

5) finally, mix all in casserole dish with noodles;

Bake covered casserole at 350 degrees F x 30minutes (until bubbly).

My husband is not a vegetable lover, but he often requests this supper. Add some garlic bread to the plate and no one will leave hungry!

I am SO going to try this! I love fetticini, but it's so high fat. This looks wonderfully healthy and tasty, beside. I just printed it out. Thanks a bunch!

That looks delicious! And I love the pictures, showing how easy it would be for me to try it. Thank you!

Would this work with cauliflower too? We have a bunch in the freezer that I need to use. We love kefir too and constantly have a batch going.

Hi Carol,

You bet you can change the vegetable to pretty much anything. The best part about easy recipes is being able to match your family's likes and dislikes. Change the spice, change the kind of cheese...go for it!
