Chicken Broccoli Pasta

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by BakinBaby

A great way to use a whole or leftover rotisserie chicken. The addition of cheese-garlic and semi soft garlic herb cheese and sun dried tomatoes enhances the chicken and broccoli. Found in BetterHome & Gardens.

High marks for speed of assembly, but we found that it was lacking in some kind of seasoning. Perhaps a bit of garlic? I used a whole grain pasta to boost the nutrition value a bit and I added a little more milk for the sauce. Made for Everyday Holiday tag game. :)
