Penne With Chicken Brocoli and Cheese

Here at home we love pasta. And if I am honest after rice , pasta is my second favourtie carb.
And I am always trying to find some new pasta dishes than sticking to the same ones. Well I usually do that but then suddenly I will be like I must try something new and then I try something like this dish.
Ofcourse not every body like the blue cheese like Gorgonzola so if you don't like the taste of this cheese then there is no use in trying it as you won't like it.
When I tried this cheese years ago I must say I didn't like it could be also I didn't had the habbit of eating cheese when I was in India.
But then bit by bit I started enjoying most of the cheese and one of the cheese I love now is this one.
We even have a cheesey sauce made with this cheese which we love and usually I make them when we have lamb chops .


200 gm brocoli floretts
50 gm butter
2 chicken breast in small slices
2 garlic chopped fine
400 gm Penne pasta
120 ml white wine ( I usually open up a bottle and then freeze the rest of the wine in a bag so that I always have white wine for cooking when the recipe ask)
200 ml cream you wan use low fat
100 gm gorgonzola cheese without the crust.
Salt and pepper to taste ( take care there is salt in the cheese)
Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top just before serving.

Cook the brocoli florettes ( I steam them) Keep them aside.
Add the butter in a hot pan when it is melted add the sliced chicken pieces with salt and pepper and fry them for couple of minutes.
In the mean time cook the pasta according to the instruction in the packet.
When the chicken is fried for few minutes add the white wine boil it for few minutes then add the cream and cook for futher for couple of minutes till the chicken is done  and the sauce is looking a bit creamy.
Add the brocoli florets and the pasta and mix it well. Then add the gorgonzola cheese and mix well.
Serve with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and enjoy .
