Penne With Chicken and Asparagus
Here are just a few reasons why  you may want to start adding asparagus to your weekly nutrition:

  • Good Source of Vitamin K.
  • Contains Anti-inflammatory and Antioxidant Properties.
  • Serves as a Natural Diuretic.
  • Nourishes the Digestive Tract.
  • Good Source of Fiber.
  • High in Vitamin B1 Thiamine.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16 ounce) package dried penne pasta
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into cubes

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
  2. Warm 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in chicken, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook until chicken is cooked through and browned, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken to paper towels.
  3. Pour chicken broth into the skillet. Then stir in asparagus, garlic, and a pinch more garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cover, and steam until the asparagus is just tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet, and warm through.
  4. Stir chicken mixture into pasta, and mix well. Let sit about 5 minutes. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil, stir again, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes (optional)
