When you want to pull together a decent dinner but don’t have a lot of time, this alfredo recipe is not only conveniently simple, it’s a real crowd-pleaser. Sargento® Mozzarella cheese teams up with heavy cream and a little bit of butter to create an irresistibly rich, smooth sauce that coats the pasta, chicken and broccoli in cheesy goodness.

  • 3 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 lb Frozen chicken breast, thawed
  • 2 Cloves of garlic or ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 ½ cups Heavy cream or half and half
  • 2 cups of Sargento® Mozzarella cheese, save 1/2 cup for serving
  • 1 (12oz.) bag Frozen broccoli, thawed
