Fast with Five: Creamy Broccoli Pasta

Home | Recipes | F
Pasta/noodl Vegetables


  • 12 oz Linguine or spaghetti
  • 3 c Broccoli florets, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 c Chicken stock
  • 1 ts All-purpose flour
  • 1 c Light herb cream cheese


By the time the water for the pasta boils, the light herbed cream sauce is ready. Do serve with Parmesan if you like, and add a leafy lettuce, red onion and mushroom salad. A new pasta form "I Tegolacci" is recommended if you can locate it.
In large pot of boiling salted water, cook linguine for 6 minutes. Add broccoli; cook for 2 minutes or until pasta is tender but firm and broccoli is tender-crisp. Drain and return to pot.
Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat chicken stock over medium-high heat; whisk in flour and cook, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat; whisk in cream cheese until melted. Toss with pasta mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
