This is another Weight Watchers recipe where you will have to have
willpower to push yourself away.
This is fabulous!
Only 6 WW points per 1 3/4 cup serving.
And fresh asparagus will be here before you know it.
I will for sure be making this again and again.
You can also make this with lean ham,
but my choice is chicken.
Give this a try.
I know your family will love it, and they won't even know it's Weight Watchers.
Chicken Penne & Asparagus
2 c. penne, measured uncooked
1 TBS olive oil
3-4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
3/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into bite sized pieces
1 lb. asparagus, trimmed to 2 inch lengths
1 c. chicken broth
1 TBS lemon juice
1 TBS dried basil
Parmesan cheese for topping
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add chicken, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook until chicken is brown (while chicken is cooking, cook pasta according to package directions). Add the asparagus, broth, basil, and lemon juice to chicken. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover and simmer until asparagus is fork tender (5-10 minutes).
Add cooked pasta and toss.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese when served.
