4 oz. fettuccine
2 Tbsp./1 oz. extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup/1 oz. garlic, finely chopped
3 Tbsp./ flour
1 ¼ cups/10 oz. no-salt added chicken stock
1 ¼ cups/10 oz. 2% milk
2 cups/8 oz. asparagus, cut into 1” pieces
2 cups/8 oz. leftover roasted or grilled chicken, shredded




1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Cook the fettuccine according to package directions. Drain and reserve.

2. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and garlic. Cook until the garlic is aromatic, about 1 minute. Whisk in the flour and continue to cook for one minute more. Add the stock and milk, whisking constantly until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese and asparagus. Turn down the heat to low and cook until the asparagus is crisp tender, about 2 minutes depending on the size. Stir in the chicken and fettuccine.

3. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
