Wonderful recipe and exactly what I had been craving! I used only 2 T. of flour because I like a thinner sauce. Used fresh broccoli and omitted the almonds because I didn't have any. Thanks a lot for a great lunch recipe!

The Longmeadow Farm loved, loved this dish. We had frozen broccoli left over from the summer months, and I used this along with some chicken breasts and was loved by all who devoured their lunch around the table. I followed this exactly, (except the addition of the chicken) and this made such a beautiful presentation as well as a filling delightful meal. I made the pasta just as suggested and had baked some chicken breasts at the same time. I put the pasta a broccoli on the plate, added the chicken (sliced in slices) and poured the sauce over top with the addition of almonds and some pretty fresh chopped chives. Oh yum little_wing terrific! :D Will use often!
