Sheet Pan Broccoli, Cheese and Chicken Pasta

Sheet Pan Broccoli, Cheese and Chicken Pasta

When it comes to busy weeknights, we love a sheet pan pasta recipe. This one features our curly Cavatappi noodles in an out-of-this-world cheesy chicken and broccoli bake.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (1-pound) package DeLallo Cavatappi
  • 2 large crowns broccoli, trimmed and cut into small florets
  • 1 ½ cups half and half
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 12 ounces sharp cheddar, grated
  • 4 ounces Havarti cheese, grated
  • 4 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 2 cups shredded roasted chicken (rotisserie works well)
  • Butter for greasing

DIRECTIONS

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425˚F. Butter a large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. 2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for 6 minutes. Stir in the broccoli and continue cooking until the pasta is al dente and the broccoli is tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, then return back to the pot.
  3. 3. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, whisk the half and half, flour, mustard, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir in the cheddar and Havarti cheeses.
  4. 4. Add the cheese mixture to the pasta and broccoli. Stir in the mascarpone. Add chicken and toss to combine.
  5. 5. Transfer the pasta mixture to the prepared baking sheet. Spread out evenly. Bake until golden and bubbly, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
