Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Pasta
I am a big fan of pasta dishes. I just love eating pasta. Sometimes when I cook at home, I use the whole wheat version of pasta for easy digestion and friendlier carbs.
I saw this recipe from Krafts.com and I would love to try this one at home one of these days.
So, if you’re a pasta fan like myself, grab a pen and paper or better yet, email this to yourself for a quick guide.
1/2 lb. fettuccine
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1/4 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes or bite-size pieces
1-2/3 cups milk (I will substitute this for a low-fat milk)
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cubed (I will use the lighter version of Philadelphia Cream Cheese)
1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves
Here’s how to prepare and cook the dish:
Cook pasta as directed on package, adding broccoli to the boiling water the last 2 min.
On the other burner, heat dressing in a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 min. or until done, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to boil, stirring constantly; cook 1 to 2 min. or until sauce is well blended and heated through.
Drain the pasta mixture; place in a large bowl.
Add chicken mixture and mix.
Bon Appetit everyone! Enjoy your meal!
