Super Simple Creamy Pasta

I adapted the creamy chicken penne     from Kraft  into a simple recipe I knew my kids would eat.  I used only  a few  ingredients   Barilla Plus whole grain pasta,  frozen broccoli and the new Kraft Philadelphia Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme. 

My broccoli was a green giant steamer.  I did put it in the microwave for a couple of mins so that it was thawed but not totally steamed.   I placed it in a skille with a little bit of olive oil to heat it up more. 

Cook the penne in a separte pot.  After draining the water, add to the skillet.   Add a full container of the Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme.   This is also when you could add cooked chicken.  I forgot to take it out to thaw so I  left it out tonight.

Mix very well in the skillet  

I served it with a little bit of grated parm on top and a mini corn on the cov as a side.   Everyone seemed to like and it my son who is ususally picky wanted seconds.     It is definitely a simple meal that can be made when you are short on time.
