I sometimes add left over chopped ham and peas and change the pasta to bow ties or I add cooked diced chicken breast and broccoli and use penne. I must say this is a good sauce and so many options.
16 oz. Penne Rigate, uncooked
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup light cream or milk
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes(fresh is beter if you have it)
Salt and ground pepper to taste
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
Meanwhile, in small saucepan, melt butter; add garlic. Cook over medium heat 1 minute.
Add flour: cook 1 minute stirring constantly. Stir in broth and milk.
Cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat until sauce thickens. Add parsley, salt, pepper and cheese; stir until cheese is melted. Toss hot pasta with sauce; serve immediately. 8 servings (1 cup each)
I have also made this using low fat margarine and 1% milk and it still has a great flavor.
