INGREDIENTS:

Sauce

  • 1T olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 T fresh garlic, minced
  • 12oz steamed cauliflower
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano (or grated parmesan)
  • Pinch of sea salt & cracked fresh pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb organic chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces (OR portabello mushrooms)
  • 1/2 lb asparagus, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 12oz wheat linguine (OR your choice of pasta or veggie noodles)

Garnish

  • Fresh parsley
  • Shaved parmesan

PREPARATION:

  1. Place steam-able bag of cauliflower in the microwave (or bring a pot of water to a boil and steam the cauliflower) and cook according to instructions given and set aside.
  2. Prepare pasta or linguine in a pot according to the instructions given.  Set aside.
  3. Set a medium skillet on medium heat.  Once hot, saute onions and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes in olive oil, or until the onion turns slightly brown and translucent.
  4. Transfer the onions and garlic to a blender, along with the remaining ingredients of the sauce.  Blend until smooth. Season to taste with pepper.  If you want a thinner sauce, simply add tablespoons of almond milk or water.
  5. Set the nonstick skillet back on high heat, once hot, spray with oil, then add chicken and asparagus pieces. Allow the chicken and asparagus to rest in the skillet until marks form, about 2 minutes.  Then reduce the heat to medium and stir together and cook the chicken through, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  6. Add pasta to the skillet and toss together using tongs.  Then, pour in the sauce and fold everything together.  Use as much sauce as you’d like and then store the rest in an airtight container.  Makes 4 servings.
