1 lb penne pasta
1 ½ cup broccoli
1 ½ to 2 cups cooked chicken
1 Tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic can add extra (we did)
2 Tablespoons flour
¾ cup chicken broth
3/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons parsley flakes
Red pepper flakes (to taste)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/3 to ½ cup grated parmesan cheese (can add extra we did)
Cook pasta according to directions
Melt butter and add garlic in medium sauce pan
Cook over med heat for 1 min.
Add flour and cook for another min stirring constantly
Stir in broth and milk and cook stirring until sauce boils and thickens
Add chicken and broccoli and stir
Add parsley, salt, pepper, pepper flakes and cheese
Stir till cheese is melted.
Add pasta and toss till covered.
Serve with extra parmesan on top.
This was very yummy and fairly easy to make we would add more pepper flakes next time or some white pepper to kick it up a little more.
Our taste buds must be getting accustomed to the heat and need to add more.
