A note about serious food allergies

Tomato has its place, and vodka is always welcome in our pastas and shot glasses, but for our money, nothing makes pasta sing like Alfie here. Rich and warm, it bathes the veggies and pasta here with pure flavor. And if you need to dredge you fork up over the plate to get the last bits of Alfredo… we aren't judging.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using protein, cook at the beginning of Step 3 before broccoli, in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook with 1 tsp. olive oil, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Cook with 1 tsp. olive oil until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 1-2 minutes. Remove to a plate and continue with broccoli. If using diced chicken, pat dry and season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook with 1 tsp. olive oil, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. Remove cooked proteins to a plate and continue with broccoli.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 11-13 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside. While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Crush crackers. In a mixing bowl, combine crackers and half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for sauce). Set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Broccoli

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add broccoli and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 5-7 minutes.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Add cream, ¼ cup pasta cooking water, cream cheese, pecorino, garlic salt, and remaining Parmesan to pan. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir constantly until sauce thickens, 2-3 minutes. Add roasted red peppers and pasta. Stir until sauce coats pasta, 30-60 seconds. If too thick, add remaining pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner and add red pepper flakes (to taste).
