Recipe Swap

Gayle at Grocery Cart Challenge is having a recipe swap today. I am going to share a recipe Chris and I just tried for the first time this week. We really liked it. I think Chris really really liked it. I ate a lot of it and commented more than once about how good it is. I got it from

Creamy Pasta Primavera

3 cups penne pasta
2 Tbsp Italian Dressing
1 1/2 Boneless Skinless Chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
2 Zucchini cut into chunks
1 Red Pepper chopped
1 1/2 cups cut up fresh asparagus
1 cup Chicken Broth
4 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta as directed on package

Meanwhile heat dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken and veggies; cook 10-12 minutes or until chicken is cooked thru, stirring frequently. Add broth and cream cheese; cook 1 minute or until cheese is melted, stirring constantly. Add Parmesan cheese; mix well.

Drain pasta; return to pot. Add chicken veggie mixture; toss lightly. Cook 1 minute or until heated thru. (Sauce will thicken upon standing.)

Check out more recipes from others at the swap on Gayle's blog.
