Creamy (Whole Wheat) Pasta Alfredo with Chicken, Mushrooms, and Broccoli

Introduction

So good and creamy! (Even if it does look a little 'plain' or 'brown' in the pic, LOL!) I don't know if it's outright 'healthy', but it's 'healthier'. ;-) [Created 2007-09-21.] So good and creamy!

Directions

1. Boil the pasta per package instructions in a pot of salted water.
2. While the pasta cooks, heat 1 tbsp. of the olive oil, salt and pepper (to taste) in a *LARGE* skillet or wok (I prefer the wok!). Add the cubed chicken breast, and cook through. Remove from the skillet and reserve.
3. Heat another 1 tbsp. of olive oil, salt and pepper (to taste) in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, onions, and mushrooms, and sautee for a few minutes, or until the garlic and onions start to caramelize a bit.
4. Next add the Broccoli. Sautee for a few minutes more.
5. When the vegetables are crisp-tender, lower the heat a bit and add the jar of alfredo sauce, half and half cream, milk, and parmesan cheese. Stir and heat through, adding the reserved chicken once the sauce and dairy is well incorporated.
6. Drain your pasta when it is 'al dente' (still a bit firm), and add to the wok. Stir and heat through.
7. (OPTIONAL, and NOT IN TRACKER!!!) Serve with more freshly grated parmesan on top!
8. Makes 9 cups. I'd eat 1 - 2 cups (1 - 2 'servings') in a meal, depending on if it's lunch or dinner. Enjoy! :)
