Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
