Chicken and Penne Parmesan

Total Time

Can also use broccoli in place of asparagus for those that don't like it. My 3 year old grandson gobbles this up. I had tried something similar in a restaurant that was to die for, so found something similar and changed it to my tastes.

We didn't really care for this. I was disapointed in the outcome as well as the rest of my family. Maybe I did something wrong?

Loved it! I added fresh mushrooms( like I do in almost every dish) and green onions a few minutes after I threw in the asparagus. I also used low fat soup and added a splash of lemon juice at the very end. It was fantastic...I especially love that it all cooked in one pot! Genius. It's a keeper for sure! Thank you for sharing.

This was very good, also as leftovers. I also added some onions and garlic like a lot of others. I also cooked the noodles for about 5 minutes which I think helped too. Thanks for the great recipe, can't wait to make it again.
