Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled, minced
  • 1 shallot, peeled, finely chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ box (8 ounces) dry linguini or spaghetti
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, as desired
  • Fresh chopped basil or parsley, as desired
  • Step 1

    Place the Ninja™ Foodi™ NeverStick® 3-Quart Sauté Pan over medium heat. Add the butter and stir until melted and pan is coated.

  • Step 2

    Add the garlic and shallot to the pan and stir occasionally until softened, about 1 minute. Add the onion and stir to combine, cooking for 3 minutes, until onions become translucent.

  • Step 3

    Add the chicken broth, milk, salt, and pepper and stir to combine. Then add the pasta and stir to combine, ensuring the liquid is covering the pasta.

  • Step 4

    Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Then, immediately reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a simmer. Simmer for minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure pasta does not stick together.

  • Step 5

    Add Parmesan cheese to the pan and stir to combine. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened to your liking, adding additional milk as necessary to thin sauce.

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, serve immediately. Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and chopped basil or parsley as desired.
