Bright broccoli, zucchini and sweet red pepper lend fresh taste to this rich chicken and pasta entree. Cream cheese makes the smooth sauce a snap to stir up. —Jody Stewart, Goldsboro, North Carolina

    We loved this recipe, it was very tasty However, I agree with mrsoathd1, it needs to be a little creamier. I added 3/4 cup milk and 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese. I could not find any zucchini, so simply put in extra broccoli. Yum, a keeper for sure!

    Easy to make. The Alfredo sauce has a nice consistency and flavor. I did add a small amount of Parmesan cheese as a topping to finish it off.
