Happy World Pasta Day - October 25th!

World Pasta Day -  October 25th

In recognition of World Pasta Day,  we would like to share an easy recipe for you. This is an easy pre-game meal,  chicken and pasta.  Of course there are many great pre-game meal combinations but chicken and pasta is typically quick to prepare and easy to digest.   



Ideally, the pre-game meal should be eaten 2-4 hours before your game or practice but as every hockey family knows, sometimes you don’t get much choice.   Do your best to allow enough time to digest without too much time to get hungry again! Every person will be different.  Experiment early in the season and find out the timing that works best for you.  

An easy recipe to follow:

2 cups 1-2% milk (Can also use almond milk)
2 Tbs of butter2 Tbs of flour
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp garlic salt  
small minced clove of garlic - optional
2 Tbs light cream cheese cut into small pieces
½ cup fresh parmesan cheese, finely shredded
Sliced cooked chicken breast (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter, then add garlic over medium heat in a non-stick saucepan.  Add flour and salt and stir while heating (approximately 2 minutes).   Slowly whisk in milk and heat on medium until it begins to thicken.   Turn down to simmer and whisk in the cream cheese until smooth.  If you have an electric mixer or Braun hand mixer this will help to get it very smooth. 

Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese and garlic salt.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Serve immediately on al dente pasta with optional sliced chicken and salad or steamed broccoli. 

Enjoy and Good Luck in the Game!
