3/4 cup small broccoli florets

1/2 cup roasted red bell pepper (available packed in jars), sliced
3/4 pound fettuccine
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add next 7 ingredients and saute until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add cream and bell pepper to skillet and bring to boil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, cook fettuccine in large pot of boiling, salted water until just tender, but still firm to bite (al dente). Drain. Place pasta in bowl. Add vegetable sauce and toss thoroughly. Mix in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve, passing additional Parmesan cheese separately.
