I used a quinoa, rice flour pasta for this but you could also use a whole wheat pasta or even quinoa instead of pasta. If using quinoa start with 1 1/2 cups uncooked. I also occasionally will add 2 chicken breasts to this dish. Slice uncooked chicken into bite size pieces and add into the pan after the onion is sautéed. Brown both sides then add in the flour and milk. Cook chicken for 10 minutes in the milk or until done (check by slicing one of the small bites in half to see if any redness remains). Continue with the rest of the recipe.
