Parmesan, Chicken & Broccoli Pasta

4 oz spaghetti, uncooked
1/4 cup Italian dressing
2 garlic cloves minced
1/2 lb boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 cups broccoli florets
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 tsp parmesan cheese

Cook spaghetti as directed on package. Meanwhile, heat dressing and garlic in a large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add chicken and broccoli; cook and stir 5-7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Stir in tomatoes and half of the mozzarella cheese; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through; stirring occasionally. Drain spaghetti, place on serving plate. Top with chicken mixture, remaining mozzarella cheese and the parmesan cheese.

What I did differently from the recipe:
I used more dressing and garlic than it called for, and I left out the tomatoes.

What I'll do differently next time:
If I had thought about it soon enough I would have chopped up some carrots to throw in there.

Thumbs UP!! This is a new favorite by far. Soooo good and it only took about 20 minutes for me to do it all - I had the chicken cooked already. Honestly, I wish I had doubled the recipe. It was that good.
