Philadelphia Fettuccine

My family really loves fettuccine, but I had never made it before because I'm really picky about the sauce. I like it to the thick and stick to the noodles. I hate runny cream sauce. Anyway, this was perfect. Everyone ate it and loved it. I'm thrilled because it was super easy and really inexpensive. (Of course, I bought almost all of the ingredients on sale, which helps!)

Philadelphia Fettuccine (adapted from
  • 1 lb fettuccine, uncooked
  • 1 can (2 cups) chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 6 oz PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese Spread
  • 7 tablespoons 100%  Parmesan Grated Cheese, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 1 steamable bag of broccoli cuts, prepared


  1. Cook pasta as directed on package.
  2. Meanwhile, combine broth and flour in medium saucepan. Stir in cream cheese spread, 5 tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese, the nutmeg and pepper; cook 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly with wire whisk until mixture boils and thickens.
  3. Drain pasta. Toss with sauce and broccoli. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese and the parsley.


  1. how many servings does this make? Looks good!

  2. It's a little hard for me to judge because I'm eating for 2 and 2/4 of my people are little. I would say about 4 average sized portions...?

  3. I love the concept of your blog and will be tweeting it for sure! I feel the same way when I make something, or even more when my son makes something and I forget to take a picture. Can't wait to read more of your posts!
    Have a great day!

  4. Sounds good and it's healthier with the broccoli.

  5. This sounds like a fun and easty version of this -- I am bookmarking this. Joni
