Broccoli bacon alfredo

(warning: you might over eat when you make this)

heavy cream
Parmesan cheese
mozzarella cheese
kosher salt
white pepper
white wine vinegar
boursin garlic & herb spread
chicken base
angel hair pasta (cooked) 1 package

(I apologize these measurements are not exact... if you're one that has to follow an exact recipe.. then I'm sorry about this, otherwise most of it is based on look and feel)

put some butter in a pan (about 2 T) add about 1 T flour and make a roux. add chopped garlic (depending on how garlicky you want.. about 1-2 cloves) let that thicken up a big. add about 1/2 T chicken base and some water and a dash of white wine vinegar. sprinkle some kosher salt and white pepper

add heavy cream (about 2 cups) and some milk (1 c) and then let that boil for a bit and keep stirring until it thickens up.

add your cheese.. as much as you feel like (about 1 cup of shredded mozz and 1/2 c parmesan) turn down the heat to low. add salt to taste

cook your angel hair pasta.. or whatever kind you want: al dente. set aside and drain

cook some bacon (however much you like...kinda wish I made more! I just had some leftovers from breakfast, so I threw it in) and cook about 1 head of broccoli (with salt) separately from your bacon (haha)

throw your pasta in a separate dish and add your alfredo sauce. Add your bacon and broccoli and mix it all together.
