Pasta with Chicken in a White Wine Cheddar Sauce
I have had this recipe starred in my google reader for quite some time now. This has been on my menu plan for a couple weeks in a row and for one reason or another I never ended up making all the meals. Finally, last week I made it. Now I’m sorry it took me so long –this was GREAT! Joe ate the leftovers for lunch the next day and said they were just as good.
Ziti with Chicken in a White Wine Cheddar Sauce
1 lb ziti or other pasta
3 Tbsp butter
1/2 Cup Roasted garlic paste
3 Tbsp flour
1/2 Cup white wine
2 Cups chicken broth
2 Cups broccoli, cooked
2 Cups chicken, cooked and cubed
1 1/2 Cups white cheddar cheese, grated
Salt and Pepper
Cook pasta to al dente and set aside. Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. When butter begins to foam, add roasted garlic paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add wine and cook until reduced, about 2 minutes. Add broth and simmer until slightly thickend, about 2 minutes. Add cheese and stir constantly while returning to a boil. Add Ziti, turning to coat. Add chicken and broccoli and serve.
