Need a change of pace? Try whole grain pasta for more fiber. Try pasta in a different shape, such as spiral or elbow. Add other vegetables such as peas, grated carrots or chopped bell peppers.

In place of chicken, use 1 1/2 cups of white beans (a 15-ounce can, drained and rinsed), another meat, or canned tuna or salmon.

Best served immediately. Reheated broccoli changes color and might have a less pleasant taste.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast (2-3 halves)
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups small shell pasta, uncooked
  • 2 1/2 cups broccoli, chopped (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions:

1. Cut chicken breast into bite sized pieces. Sauté pieces in oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat (350 degrees in an electric skillet) until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.

2. Add water, bouillon, soup, pepper and garlic to skillet. Stir until smooth. Add pasta and broccoli.

3. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until pasta is tender, 15 – 20 minutes. Add a small amount of water near end of cooking if needed to prevent sticking.

4. Add cheese during last two minutes of cooking.

Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
