Creamy Garlic Pasta

Creamy Garlic Pasta Sauce
By Shaylee Miller

½ lb. Pasta, BOWTIE or PENNE
2 Tablespoons Butter
2-3 Cloves of Garlic minced
2 Tablespoons Flour
¾ Cup Chicken Broth
¾ Cup Milk
2 Teaspoon Parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/3 Cup grated parmesan cheese

Melt butter, add garlic, cook 1 minute
Add flour- stir constantly, cook 1 minute
Stir in broth and milk, stir frequently until sauce thickens
Add parsley, salt and pepper and cheese.

Serve with Grilled Chicken, cut in diagonal strips. Serve with Garlic Bread or warm French bread!

*What I do is pour sauce over cooked noodles and put chicken on top, sprinkle left over parmesan cheese over top and put into the oven until cheese is melted. Oven is set for 350 degrees*

I hope this works, normally don’t combined and make 7 meals together!
