Easy Walnut Spaghetti

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces spaghetti
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil or butter
  • 4 cloves garlic pressed or finely-minced
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions, in generously-salted water.
  • Heat olive oil (or melt butter) in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add garlic and saute one minute, stirring occasionally.
  • Sprinkle with flour, and stir to combine. Saute for an additional minute to cook the flour, stirring occasionally.
  • Slowly add chicken broth, whisking to combine until smooth. Whisk in milk, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let cook for an additional minute until thickened, then stir in Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper until the cheese melted. Reduce heat to medium-low until pasta is cooked.
  • Drain pasta, then immediately add pasta to the saute pan. Toss to combine.
  • Sprinkle the top with chopped pecans.
