Recipe by mmm...donuts

After a week of grilled meat and roasted vegetables, my husband requested something creamy and cheesy. This is what I came up with.

This has good flavor but I had a few issues with the sauce melting enough. I suggest adding some milk, broth, or non-fat half and half to the sauce. Maybe even a little butter or oil if your diet can afford it. I thought there was a little to much broccoli for the other ingredients. Tomatoes might go well here too. I also think that the grilled should be seasoned somehow. Good flavor here, just needs a little tweaking!

Directions

  1. Blend cream cheese, chipotle, and asiago in a microwave-safe dish. Taste, and add more chipotle if needed. The yogurt will tame the spicyness, so you may want the cream cheese blend to be a notch higher than you would normally like. Set aside.
  2. Steam broccoli to desired level of doneness. Set aside.
  3. Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain.
  4. Microwave cream cheese mixture on high for 1 minute.
  5. Add yogurt to cream cheese mixture, stir to combine.
  6. Reheat chicken, if necessary.
  7. Combine broccoli and pasta.
  8. Stir in cream cheese mixture. Add salt and pepper if desired.
  9. Top with grilled chicken.
