Shrimp, Broccoli, Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic Alfredo Sauce

When I was a kid my mom started me on broccoli by showing they were small trees. I also wanted to believe that the Jolly Green Giant was real and that he was telling us to eat those trees. Of course, I loved the Jolly Green Giant commercials so that was cool to be able to eat an entire broccoli tree. Most of the time we had fresh broccoli, but sometimes it was frozen and mixed with other vegetables.

As I got older I found different ways to make that broccoli that already tasted good, taste better.

Kids Love Pasta

I love shrimp and pasta with Alfredo sauce. Adding broccoli not only gives it color but gives it a nice crunch and added flavor.

Kids love shrimp and they love pasta. There is almost no food more fun to play with than long strings of pasta. How many times can you wrap long thin strings of pasta around your fork? And then how much of it can you get in your mouth?
