Easy… Chicken-Pasta Primavera

Today’s Swingin’ Summer Saturday’s & Sunday’s recipe come from my “Betty Crocker Cookbook” (1986), page 254.

It is a recipe I use to make Joe when we were dating. Enjoy!


  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, cut into very thin strips
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups cut-up cooked chicken or turkey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 cups hot cooked macaroni shells or wheels
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons snipped parsley


Cook and stir broccoli, onion, garlic and carrot in oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 10 minutes.  Stir in chicken, salt and tomatoes; heat just until chicken is hot, about 3 minutes.  Spoon chicken mixture over macaroni; sprinkle with cheese and parsley.  6 servings 290 calories per serving.
