Andy Boy Broccoli lemon fettuccini


6 quarts salted water
12 oz. fettuccini
1 lb. Andy Boy broccoli
1 cup whipping cream
4 tsp. grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. butter, softened
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. chopped Italian parsley


In a large pot, heat water to boiling. Add fettuccini and cook, adding broccoli halfway through cooking time. (Cooking times for fettuccini may vary; check package for cooking time.)

Bring to boiling and boil 30 seconds. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add fettuccini, broccoli, butter, Parmesan and parsley and toss to mix well. Serve hot.
