Scale

Ingredients

1/2 lb ground chicken

1/4 cup frozen green peas

1 1/2 cup milk

1 piece 8 ounces cream cheese ( low fat)

1 teaspoon white sugar

1 piece 16 flz oz heavy whipping cream

1 tablespoon corn starch

1/4 cup water

1 box 16 oz Whole Grain Penne

salt and pepper to season (optional)

1 tablespoons oil

1 tablespoon cooking oil


Instructions

Cook Whole Grain Penne per box instructions. Drain and set aside.

In low fire, heat cooking oil and cook ground chicken until no longer red. In the same pot, add the milk and simmer. Add in the cream cheese.

Mash the cream cheese until well incorporated with the milk and there's no more lumps. Add the sugar, and heavy cream and you can season with salt or ground pepper according to your liking, but I like my sauce without them.

Mix water and cornstarch until there's no lumps.

Simmer in low fire and add the corn starch and water mixture. Let simmer until the sauce is sticky. Add the frozen peas and the cooked penne pasta and gently mix for the sauce to coat the pasta.

Serve hot. Freeze left over or prepare it for next day's lunch. ENJOY!
