This is a great salad for lunch or dinner.  It is wonderful served hot or cold, which makes for great leftovers.  If you are looking for a creamier sauce, reserve about half a cup of the cooking water.  Add it back to the pasta and stir in the parmesan.  This will create a wonderful cheesy sauce.
 What You Need:

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into 1 inch pieces

1 tablespoon chopped onion

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 cups frozen broccoli florets

salt and pepper to taste

1 pinch dried oregano

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

 What To Do:
Prepare the pasta according to package directions. In a skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the chicken and onion and cook for about 7 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Add the garlic and broccoli, heat through.  Add oregano, salt and pepper.  Stir in the pasta, sprinkle with the parmesan, and enjoy.
