Well, I was picking up chicken & pitas for lemon cumin chicken last night when I decided that, since I was buying chicken anyway, I might as well make her dream dinner for her. She was having an inordinately rough day at work. I figured it would be a nice end to the day. Luckily, we'd picked up some bucatini on our drive home because our local groceries don't seem to carry it.
Bucatini Alfredo with Chicken & Broccoli
8 oz. bucatini (or your favorite kind of pasta), cooked and still hot
1 1/2 sticks butter, cut into pieces
1 c. whole milk
1 c. grated, good quality parmesan
Salt & pepper
Some chicken, cooked and cubed
Some broccoli florets, cooked (and not overcooked!)
Stir the butter and milk into the pasta on medium-low heat until the butter melts. Stir in the cheese until it melts. Season with salt and pepper. Toss in chicken and broccoli.
