How To

Topping

  1. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt the MagicalButter.
  2. Add the breadcrumbs, and stir for 1 minute. Then add the parmesan cheese, stir, and remove from heat. Set the pan aside until just before baking.

Pasta

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F/165°C.
  2. In a large pot of well-salted water, boil the pasta until half-cooked (about 4 minutes). Strain, and set it aside.
  3. In a large sauté pan on medium-high, heat your MagicalButter for 30-45 seconds.
  4. Add onions and shallots, stirring over medium heat until they’re golden brown (about 3-4 minutes). Add garlic, and cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Add the wine and chicken broth, stir, and cook for 2-3 minutes; add milk, and whisk thoroughly.
  6. Slowly add the cheeses, one at a time, constantly whisking them until fully incorporated into the sauce (about 2-3 minutes).
  7. In a large bowl, add pasta and ¾ of your cheese sauce. Stir until the pasta is completely coated; then fold in chicken and broccoli.
  8. Pour the pasta mixture into a glass casserole baking dish. Then top it with the rest of the cheese sauce, coat it with breadcrumbs, and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  9. When time is up, remove from the oven and plate your Chicken & Broccoli Cheesy Pasta, and enjoy!
