Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Casserole

Do you ever find yourself looking at your stove and wonder …..what should I make for dinner tonight?  You want it to be quick and easy!!!  My first thought is a casserole that I can put everything in, bake and serve!  You can do that with just 5 basic ingredients:

Chicken, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese,  broccoli and pasta.

I used whole wheat bow tie pasta.  I first boiled the pasta.  While that is cooking I cut up chicken breasts in bite size pieces and brown in olive oil with fresh garlic, salt, pepper, parsley flakes and basil.  Mix your cooked pasta and chicken in a casserole dish.  In your same saute pan cook your cut up broccoli in olive oil until slightly tender.  Add that to your casserole dish.

Again using your same pan make your Alfredo sauce (see my sauces 101 blog) Flour and butter to make a roux.  Add milk, garlic powder and parmesan cheese. stir until slightly thickened.

Add your sauce to your chicken, pasta and broccoli along with some grated mozzarella cheese. Top with more parmesan cheese and bake at 350 deg. until cooked through.

There you go..one pan….one dish!!!
