Broccoli and Provolone Alfredo

Rich and Creamy

Broccoli and Provolone Alfredo is made with my two favorite ingredients, cheese and cream. It’s a simple recipe to mix together and shouldn’t take any longer than thirty minutes to make.

The cheese blend of Parmesan and provolone gives it a sharper flavor than just using Parmesan. Provolone originated in Southern Italian but is now widely produce throughout Italy and North America. It’s taste varies from the Provolone Piquant type which is aged four months and produces a very sharp tasting cheese to the Provolone Dolce type which consists of a milder sweeter taste.

I prefer the sharper tasting cheese for this dish because it produces a richer, creamier flavor when combined with the Parmesan, broccoli and cheese. This Broccoli and Provolone Alfredo is full of calories so don’t make it as often as you would like.
