Zesty Chicken and Pasta Recipe

I found this recipe on the Kraft website and it turned out really good! I made this on monday and since it serves 6, I have been eating it all week.

4-1/2 cups whole wheat fusilli pasta, uncooked
1/2 cup KRAFT calorie wise Zesty Italian Dressing, divided
1 lb. (450 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cups broccoli florets
1 large red pepper, chopped
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup KRAFT 100% Light Grated Parmesan Cheese

COOK pasta as directed on package.
MEANWHILE, heat 1/4 cup of the dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 min. or until cooked through, stirring occasionally. Add vegetables and parsley; cook 5 min. or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
DRAIN pasta; mix with chicken mixture and remaining 1/4 cup dressing. Sprinkle with cheese.

I thought the dressing gave it a nice flavor and is similar to a pasta salad, but warm. It was worth a try and I wasnt disapointed!

See, this is the difference between you and me - if I made that I would have finished it in 2 sittings. You make it last the whole week... I have a ways to go yet!

It certainly look delicious!
