Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, dust it with flour and stir until a roux forms

Cook the roux, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, then continue whisking and pour in the milk and cream.

Cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
Remove from heat and set aside until needed.
In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and sauté onion, carrot and celery for 8-10 minutes, or until softened. Season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant, then season with parsley, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes.
Add the white wine and cook for 2 minutes, scraping up any browned residue from the bottom of the pan, then add the bay leaves and add the chicken stock.

Add the minced chicken and ditalini, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Add the thickened roux and cook for 5 minutes or until the mixture is hot and the pasta is al dente.
Add the Parmesan until melted and serve hot.
Sprinkle with fresh parsley and enjoy.
