Quick and Easy Dinner

i wanted pasta tonight. i was craving something creamy. usually not the best thing for you but i worked hard at the gym today and i was HUNGRY!

i made a very quick and easy pasta dish and added some veggies to it to up the "good for you" quotient.

look at that, hot off the press. it even steamed up the camera lens

while the water came to a boil for the whole wheat rotini, i sauteed some mushrooms and garlic in just a tsp of olive oil and a splash of wine. i shredded a little bit of rotisserie chicken and cut up some fresh broccoli. i threw the pasta into the boiling water, added a couple of tablespoons of the pasta water to the mushroom mix along with shredded chicken. i also added 1/4 c of roasted garlic alfredo sauce to the mushrooms chicken mix. when the pasta has about 5 minutes left, i throw in the broccoli. when finished, drain the pasta and broccoli and add it to the mushroom mix. toss until sauce is evenly coating everything. sprinkle grated parmesan on top of desired and enjoy!

i'm off to bed, but how cute is this?
