Directions

In a large pot, add water and bring it to a boil. Add the uncooked fettucine, garlic and salt and let the pasta cook for 5 minutes. While the pasta is cooking, chop up the broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
Once the five minutes is up, add the broccoli pieces, mushrooms and butter. Gently stir and cook for another 3 minutes. While waiting, blend the milk and cream cheese together until smooth.
Add the milk and cream cheese mixture to the pot. Bring the heat down to low and cook for another 3 minutes. Cook for another minute while mixing in the parmesan cheese, then turn off the heat.
Add salt and pepper to taste, then cover the pot and let it sit for a few minutes. Take the time to set the table.
Dust with however much more parmesan cheese you desire upon serving, then feast.
