  • 200 grams smoked kabana sliced
  • ½ onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 ½ cups chicken stock
  • 300 grams elbow pasta
  • 1 ½ cup broccoli florets


  • Heat olive oil in a heavy based pot on high heat and add sliced kabana. Fry until golden and the edges are crispy and then carefully remove using a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • To the pan with the residual oil, add the onion and aute for 5 minutes until soft. Add the garlic, oregano and salt and cook for an additional minute until fragrant.
  • Turn down the heat to medium/low and add the milk, chicken stock and pasta and mix to combine. Cover the top with the broccoli and place the lid on. Cook for approximately 15 minutes, depending on the size of your pasta.
  • Remove the lid and stir through, checking to see if the pasta has cooked and the sauce is thick. Take off the heat and stir through the parmesan if using and serve immediately.


To reheat, add a splash of milk and reheat either on the stove or in the microwave. The additional milk will keep the pasta creamy rather than going dry which often happens when reheating.
Good quality parmigiano reggiano cheese does not contain lactose, so combined with a lactose-free milk or dairy-free milk such as oat milk makes this dish fine for those with lactose sensitivities. If you are completely dairy-free, use oat milk and omit the parmesan.
