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. :)

Loved this recipe for a "meatless Monday" main dish. Used a box of multigrain farfalle, 2 packages of frozen vegetables (one broccoli cuts, one California mix which includes cauliflower and carrots), left over low fat vegetable cream cheese spread from a Panera's bagel run, plus a little cream. Didn't have tomatoes, but sprinkled on some red pepper flakes, garlic powder and freshly grated parmesan and black pepper. My husband didn't even notice there was no meat!

I didn't have to turn the oven on for this delicious dish - that's a bonus in this heat! This one pot dish was delicious and easy to put together. I used rotini because I always use Smart Pasta, I also used low fat cream cheese, and 1% milk. I couldn't find the tomatoes in oil, so I just rehydrated some dry ones. Made for Newest Zaar Tag. Thanks! :)
