- Cook the fettuccine pasta according to the package instructions, and reserve 125 ml of pasta cooking water before draining. Set aside.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of Flora Original in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- In the same pan add the remaining Flora Original and melt. Add garlic and stir constantly for an additional minute, or until the garlic softens.
- Add Elmlea and chicken broth and bring to a gentle boil. Add the nutmeg and then simmer for 2-3 minutes until the liquid starts to thicken.
- Turn off the heat, stir in the Parmesan cheese and chicken. Add the cooked pasta and broccoli and fold through gently, add some of the reserved pasta water if the sauce is too thick. Serve immediately
