Tasty Tuesday

The last couple of posts (besides my ranting) were ones that I had finished in my "other life" and set to publish at a later date...I love it! This recipe is my latest favorite and makes plenty so I always have some for lunch the next day..leftovers are my friend lately, the more the merrier.

Creamy Chicken with Broccoli Shells

1 box jumbo pasta shells
3-4 chicken breasts, depending on their size OR as suggested by Linda Kelly you could de-bone a rotisserie chicken...that would be full of flavor!
1 broccoli crown
1 egg
1 container of cottage cheese/or ricotta
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 package of Italian dressing mix (I use Good Seasons)
1 tsp salt and pepper
1 jar of Alfredo sauce

Preheat oven to 350

Boil water for pasta and cook for 12 minutes or just until al dente. Drain, rinse and set aside.
Steam broccoli, cook chicken in garlic olive oil
In a small bowl, beat egg. Stir in cottage cheese, chicken, broccoli, mozzarella, italian seasoning, salt and pepper until thoroughly combined
Spoon 1 cup of pasta sauce into a 13x9 baking dish; set aside.

Fill pasta shells with chicken mixture. Arrange in dish. Drizzle remaining alfredo sauce and cheese over.

Bake for 30 minutes

Looks yummy. I have been thinking about you. I didn't get a chance to talk to you at church on Sunday and have been wondering how you have been. I hope this semester finishes up quickly for you, so you can take a breath. Let me know if you need anything in the meantime!

Ok Tiff, I totally want to try this. How much chicken are you supposed to use?? And by cook chicken, do you mean boil? I'm a little cooking-retarded!

Laura, I guess you could boil the chicken but it wouldn't be the best. The descriptive word I would use would be grill the chicken in olive oil...good luck! Was was Utah?

Can you just buy a rotiserre chicken and debone it for the stuffed shells?? You didn't put on your blog how much chicken you need for the recipe! Sound yummy!!
