This 5-ingredient dinner is not your average chicken Alfredo recipe. This easy, cheesy pasta casserole is packed with palate-pleasers like creamy Alfredo sauce and shredded mozzarella that everyone in your family will love, plus white-meat chicken and chopped broccoli for a hearty dose of protein + veg. Best of all, it preps in 15 minutes flat and is ready to enjoy in just over half an hour. This one’s a winner.

Ingredients

1
box (16 oz) penne pasta
2
tablespoons olive oil
2
lb uncooked chicken tenders (not breaded), cut into chunks
Salt and pepper to taste
1
bag (12 oz) frozen broccoli cuts, thawed
2
jars (16 oz each) Alfredo sauce
2
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)

Directions

  • 1 In large pot of water, cook penne pasta until al dente as directed on box. Drain; return pasta to pot.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat oven to 350°F. In 10- to 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add uncooked chicken tenders; season with salt and pepper. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.
  • 3 Add chicken and broccoli to pasta; stir to combine. Stir in alfredo sauce until well blended.
  • 4 Pour mixture evenly into ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Sprinkle cheese evenly over top.
  • 5 Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until heated through in center and cheese is melted.
Tips  

Serve the baked penne with a baked loaf of Pillsbury™ refrigerated crusty French loaf and a side salad for a complete meal.

Sprinkle with crushed red pepper after baking for a little more kick.
