Broccoli Chicken Pesto Pasta

Broccoli Chicken Pesto Pasta created by Lizzi

When there is no time to cook for my family, I whip up something so easy that my youngest in college can make for his roommates. It's quick and simple. You may grill your own chicken breast and use fresh broccoli.

Ready In:

ingredients

directions

  • Cut the fresh broccoli buds into small florets, leaving as short a stem as possible; set aside.
  • Meanwhile, boil the pasta in salted water for about 4-5 mins or until al dente. Remaining 3 mins add the reserved florets into the same pot and boil 3 minutes, retaining the bright green color and a bit of crunch. Then place the chicken breast strips into the same pot just to warm it up about a minute. If you're using frozen you can wait until 3 mins are remaining. Add the chicken first that frozen broccoli.
  • Drain pasta, broccoli and chicken. Pour warm sauce over the pasta and stir gently to combine; plate and sprinkle with shredded parmasan cheese or your choice of cheese.

    A little dry. Could use some oil, or something added to the pesto. But it was good.

    My family is very picky. I had my mother & mother-in-law over to try the recipe. My whole family loved it including my kids
