Healthy One Pot Broccoli Pasta Alfredo
This Healthy One Pot Broccoli Pasta Alfredo comes together in less than 30 minutes and it's got a delicious, creamy sauce that's healthier than traditional fettuccine alfredo!
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup 2% milk
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 3/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 box Chickapea Pasta spirals or gluten-free pasta
- 1 head broccoli, cut into small florets
Add olive oil and garlic to a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat. Add in flour, whisking until a paste forms. Add in broth, milk, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Lower heat and bring to a simmer.
Add parmesan cheese, whisking well to combine. Add Chickapea Pasta spirals and stir well to coat, letting simmer for 4-5 minutes or so until pasta is tender. Stir in broccoli and cook another 2 minutes until broccoli is tender and sauce is mostly absorbed.
Serve with extra parmesan cheese on top and enjoy!
NOTE: if using regular pasta, make sure to boil the pasta separately for 8-10 min until fully cooked, then toss in sauce with broccoli.
