Broccoli and Chicken Alfredo
16 oz penne (or whatever pasta you would prefer)
2 c. broccoli (blanched)
2 chicken breasts
2 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
1 c. grated parmesan cheese
Fry chicken breasts in oil, (I chop them as they cook with the flat spoon) When almost done put in 2 cloves of garlic, pressed.
Cut broccoli into bite sized pieces.
Cook pasta according to package directions.
To blanch the broccoli, I put a colander in the pasta water, place the broccoli inside and boil for 1-2 minutes, then take it out and let it drain.
For Alfredo Sauce:
Heat heavy whipping cream in saucepan, stirring constantly. When it starts to boil sprinkle and mix parmesan cheese in. Do this slowly so the parmesan melts before adding more cheese, if added all at once it will be clumpy.
Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste. Take off the heat.
Drain pasta, mix with broccoli, chicken and sauce. Serve.
Mmmm! So tasty!
