Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Pasta

Directions

Mealthy Tip

Feel free to use whatever seasonal vegetables you have in your refrigerator instead of the broccoli. This creamy pasta would be equally delicious with roasted Brussels sprouts, cubed zucchini, julienned red peppers or fresh or frozen peas. Simply omit the chicken to make the pasta vegetarian.

The absolute best thing about this recipe is that it's one-pot (and also super delicious). My kid and husband were super happy and even ate the broccoli they sometimes avoid. I will be making this in the future, total winner!

I made this recipe and it's a super simple and easy to make dish. You can't even tell the sauce is prepared with low-fat milk and and cheese! Overall, this dish was was creamy and flavorful, and perfect even for picky eaters.

This was a really good, easy to make pasta dish. I add a little white pepper or red chili flakes to my dish, and give the kids this version. It's really simple and better than using store bought sauces.

I used sweet green peas instead of using broccoli. My kids eat this stuff up! The bowtie pasta noodles are perfect for their little hands. I added lots of garlic to this recipe, but other than that kept everything the same.

It's tasty, the kids love it, and it has some veggies in it! I didn't make a lot of the sauce so my kids ate it with their little fingers.
