  • 8

    oz cooked carrots

  • 2 1/2

    cups low-sodium chicken stock

  • 1

    cup 2% milk

  • 1

    cup white onion, chopped

  • 3

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 2-3

    T all-purpose flour

  • 2/3

    cup Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 1/2

    cup dry white wine

  • 1/3

Directions

Preheat oven to 375º F and lightly spray 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil and cook pasta until al dente. In a large pan or skillet, add 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat and swirl pan so that it evenly coats the bottom. Add peas and carrots to pan and saute until softened. 3-4 minutes. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is translucent and garlic fragrant. Pour in white wine, reduce heat and let cook until reduced. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and whisk in flour to create a roux. Once smooth and a dark, golden color, slowly pour in milk and chicken stock, stirring continuously. Bring sauce to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 7 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan and cream cheese, salt and pepper, and stir well. Carefully pour the sauce into the peas, carrots and onions, and add the pasta and shredded chicken. Toss to combine well. Pour mixture into baking dish, place in oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until cooked through and bubbly. Remove from oven, let rest 5 minutes, if desired, garnish with toasted almonds and serve hot.
