I can’t believe March is almost gone! I haven’t even put a dent in my monthly meal plan. That’s the thing about planning your meals monthly, whatever doesn’t get cooked goes on for next month.
This is called my one pot meal when I need to get groceries or am trying to use up what I have. As I said in a previous post, we are pasta lovers! All you need is a few ingredients and you can go a long way with this one..because we mama’s need to save time and space to play ninja’s and fold underwear. Enjoy!
1 box (1 lb) pasta noodles ( I used farefelle)
2 Tbsp butter, divided
2 Tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 Cup of milk
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup broccoli florets
Other options: carrots, peppers, onions, mushrooms
2 Packages of kielbasa or Italian Sausage
Cook your noodles according to package, about 8 minutes for al dente. Drain and set aside.
Heat the Tbsp of butter and melt. Saute garlic for 30 seconds until fragrant. Whisk in flour to make a paste and slowly pour in milk. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly (2 minutes). Whisk in cream cheese and Parmesan cheese and stir until smooth. remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
In the microwave, steam your broccoli. In a large frying pan over medium heat, heat 1 Tbsp of butter and saute sausage until browned or cooked through.
Throw your pasta, sausage and broccoli in the sauce mixture and toss to coat.
