Lemon Chicken Pasta with Broccoli

Inspiration for last night’s delicious dinner compliments of Betty Crocker, once again easy, yummy and fast, my three favorite things!

2 tablespoons butter

3 cloves garlic, pressed

16 oz your choice of pasta

2 (14 oz each) cans chicken broth

1/2 cup water

juice of 3 lemons

4 cups chopped broccoli

2 (12 oz each) cans chicken

grated rind of 1 lemon

Parmesan cheese

1  Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat.  Add garlic and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant.

2  Stir in pasta, broth, water and lemon juice.  Heat to boiling, stirring as needed, then reduce to medium low.  Cover and simmer 10 minutes.  Stir well.

3  Spread broccoli and chicken over pasta.  Cover and cook 10 more minutes or until pasta is done and most of liquid is gone.

4  Stir in lemon rind.  Top with cheese.
