Quick Healthy Chicken Broccoli Alfredo

We like to keep a lot of veggies and cooked meat in our house for quick and healthy meals.  The other night the BF and I needed a quick and satisfying meal that wouldn't break our calorie count.  I found this pasta sauce in good housekeeping and love that I can add whatever I want.  For this night I made up the sauce, added some cut up broccoli, and poured it over whole wheat linguini with cut up chicken.  Paired with a side salad it is the perfect quick evening meal.

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo
For the Sauce:
1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion minced
1 1/2 tsp all purpose flour
1 cup skim milk
2 tbs grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 box whole wheat linguini
Cooked chicken breast
1) Cook pasta according to box directions and set aside
2) In medium sauce pan, heat oil and cook onion until slightly tender (about 3-5 minutes)
3) add in flour and cook for another minute, then stir in milk and bring to boil stirring frequently
4) the sauce should thicken slightly, after bringing to a boil remove from heat and add in parmesan cheese and broccoli
5) Pour over pasta and add chopped chicken
6) Enjoy!
This sauce can really transform into anything you want, adding in different cheeses can make it a totally different flavor and feel free to add in any other veggies or meats!
