  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream (can substitute evaporated milk, if desired)
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Steam broccoli. While broccoli is steaming, make the sauce.
  • Melt the butter in a sauce pan. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute
  • Add the heavy cream. Bring to a boil.
  • SLOWLY add in the parmesan cheese, whisking until completely melted.

If you are using your Instant Pot- you can steam the broccoli in the Instant Pot, drain the water and then make the sauce right in the liner! Only one dish to clean. :)
