Easy dinner night

I know that sometimes a home cooked meal can be overwhelming, so this is a good shortcut to keep on hand: Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo sauce. It has 60 calories per serving, although I end up eating at least 2 servings- it still isn't bad!

So, I slice up some chicken breast and through it in a pan. I cook it throw, and add some chopped broccoli to "steam" on top of the chicken in the last minutes. Meanwhile, I boil salted water and pasta.  Once the broccoli and chicken are mostly cooked, I add the jar of sauce (and empty it with a swig of milk).

Then I serve the sauce over the noodles. Last time I made it, I thought- ohh- angel hair- that'll be nice. Wrong. I always do that with angel hair. It absorbs TOO much of the sauce. Stick with linguine.
