Skinny Broccoli Alfredo Pasta {recipe}

You might remember some of my favorite healthy pasta recipes from the past, like the Balsamic Chicken Pasta and the Kale Pesto Pasta.  I’m a firm believer that you should be able to eat whatever you want and stay healthy and fit, which is why I thoroughly enjoyed delicious broccoli Alfredo pasta for dinner the other night =)  I’m not a fan of the the standard creamy Alfredo sauce, so I made a few modificiations to the sauce…the result?  Skinny Broccoli Alfredo Pasta…

Skinny Broccoli Alfredo Pasta {recipe serves 2}

2 cups cooked broccoli

one cup cooked whole wheat linguini

2 tbsp olive oil

one clove crushed garlic

2 tbsp flour

1 cup chicken broth

1/4 skim milk

1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

salt & pepper

Directions:

Cook pasta according to package directions

Using a large skillet, heat olive oil, add garlic and cook until golden brown (about 1 minute).  Add flour to the skillet, whisk for about a minute.

Add in chicken broth, skim milk, Greek yogurt and salt & pepper, reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese. Pour sauce over cooked pasta then add broccoli.

Enjoy!
