This recipe turns a beloved pasta dish--rich, creamy Alfredo--into an easy, one-pot endeavor. If you like it saucier, use the larger amount of cream. Sunset reader Wendy Hollingsworth, of Clinton Township, Michigan, shared the recipe.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook broccoli until tender and bright green, 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a colander, leaving water in pot. Add chicken to pot; cook until opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to colander with broccoli.

Step 2

Cook pasta in same pot of water until just tender to the bite, about 10 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water; drain pasta.

Step 3

Simmer cream, reserved 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 cup parmesan in same pot over medium heat, stirring often. Add broccoli, chicken, and pasta, stirring to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with additional parmesan on the side.

Super easy one dish meal that my family loved. I kept the cook time to 2 minutes for fear of over cooking both the broccoli and chicken....and added a bit more cheese for favor. Yum...will cook again.
