Whisk in the flour and then slowly whisk in the milk. Cook and whisk constantly, until slightly thickened (about 2-3 minutes). Whisk in the cream cheese and parmesan cheese and stir until smooth (about 1-2 minutes). Remove from heat and cover to keep warm. Steam broccoli, red pepper and carrots until tender (about 3 minutes). In a large bowl toss the pasta and steamed veggies. Add the cheese sauce and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

  • Great tasting recipe, but I don't think the nutritional info is accurate. I added red chili flakes to mine when served for a spicy zing! - 6/21/13

  • Very good! This tasted so rich and creamy. I added shrimp, zucchini and broccoli for the veggies. I suppose you could add any veggies you wanted. I also used fettucine noodles instead. Basically it is a great recipe that can incorporate whatever you have on hand. - 2/3/10
