I wasn’t a real big fan of this dish. I think it was the sun-dried tomatoes that didn’t good to me. Maybe I’ll swap those out if I try this dish again.

1 pkg. (16 oz.) bow tie pasta, uncooked
4 cups  broccoli florets
1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 cup  Italian dressing
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, cut into strips
1/2 cup  Grated Parmesan Cheese
Directions:

1. COOK pasta as directed on pkg., adding broccoli to the cooking water for the last 3 min. of the pasta cooking time.

2. MEANWHILE, cook chicken in 1/4 cup of the dressing in large skillet on medium heat 8 min. or until chicken is cooked through, stirring frequently.

3. DRAIN pasta mixture; place in large bowl. Add chicken and all remaining ingredients; mix lightly.

Serves 8.
