This dish is rich in flavor and the whole wheat pasta and peas add lots of fiber.  Easy to make any day of the week.

  • 2 Teaspoons
    olive oil

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package instructions until al dente. Drain.

  2. While pasta is cooking, in a large non-stick pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the Dijon mustard and flour. Gradually whisk in the chicken broth, stirring constantly to avoid clumps.
