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.
