Recipe: Shrimp Alfredo Risotto w/ Broccoli

Shrimp Alfredo Risotto w/ Broccoli

Hey, y’all know I’m new at this. If I were not working two jobs I would be all up on that making things from scratch thing, but since I’m not and we’re all in a hurry, I’ll keep this brief and vague.

So, something I try to make sure always happens when I eat a meal is that I have a protein, vegetable, and carb. At least for lunch and dinner. Breakfast can sometimes be just a carb and protein because I usually workout just before eating, but I know I can do better on that.

This week’s recipe is for the nutritional foodie on the go. The average cooking time is about 20-30 minutes, so you shouldn’t have a problem squeezing that in every day or every other day. I like really simple recipes that get the job done usually. This Shrimp Alfredo Risotto w/ Broccoli makes two servings so you can have one for dinner or one for lunch. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1) Lundberg Alfredo Risotto
2) Frozen broccoli florets
3) Shrimp cocktail
