Joy's Pasta with Chicken and Broccoli

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

I found this recipe in the Chicago Tribune Food Guide about 10 years ago. It's called "Joy's" because it's Regis Philbin's wife, Joy's, recipe. He raved about this dish on "Live" one day and shortly afterward, his wife Joy demonstrated the recipe on the show. It's really good and cooks pretty fast once you assemble all your ingredients.

I made this last night, and added sliced red onion, toasted pine nuts, and crumbled goat's cheese instead of the parm. It was good, but I'd add more seasoning next time. The small amount of basil isn't quite enough to do justice to the rest of the ingredients.
