Broccoli cheese pasta sauce

Here I’m down for the count with a major cold. So annoying when I have so much work to do. Yesterday when I arrived home from my yoga class I was miserable and not hungry at all. Unfortunately my family still looked for me to cook them dinner so I make pasta with a simple broccoli sauce which off course was a huge hit with my broccoli loving family.

1 1/2 cups broccoli, steamed
1 1/2 cups water mixed with 2 tbs white spelt flour
1/4 cup chive & garlic cream cheese
Salt to taste
Pinch of nutmeg
Bring to a boil water mixed with flour in a sauce pan. Whisk the whole time. Reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes and stir in cream cheese, salt and nutmeg. If the sauce seems too thick stir in some water or milk. Remove from heat and combine with broccoli. Serve over pasta.
