8 ounces asparagus
3/4 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

Recipe Directions for Pasta with chickpeas and asparagus

  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook pasta for 6 minutes. Add broccoli rabe and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the pasta and broccoli rabe are just tender, about 3 minutes more. Drain. Rinse and dry the pot.

  2. Whisk broth and flour in a small bowl. Heat oil in the pot over medium-high heat. Add garlic and rosemary and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Whisk in the broth mixture.

Cook, stirring constantly, until heated through and coated with the sauce, about 2 minutes.
