Ingredients
  • 8 ounces fettuccine
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage, plus small whole leaves for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup fat-free chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan, plus more for serving
Directions
  1. In a pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and transfer to a large serving bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat the EVOO over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and chopped sage and cook, stirring frequently, until the garlic is golden, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the flour until smooth, about 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in the chicken broth, milk, pepper and nutmeg. Bring to a low boil, stirring constantly. Lower the heat and simmer, stirring gently, until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes.
  4. Pour the sauce over the pasta and toss. Stir in 3/4 cup parmesan. Top with the sage leaves and more parmesan.
