One-Skillet Pasta with Chicken and Broccoli

We have divided duties in our household – I’m the cook and my husband does the dishes. Needless to say, there are times that, while he might enjoy the meal, he’s not too pleased with the amount of dishes it took to get there. I always try to be frugal with my dish and pot count, and I make every effort to clean as I go, but there always seem to be a flurry of activity at the very end that results in a pile of dirty dishes for Chris to clean. That’s one reason why I love this recipe – it only uses one skillet to cook the whole dish (along with knives, cutting board and measuring cups/spoons). This is also one of our staple household dishes because it tastes great. It has a lot of flavor from the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes and the broth-based sauce is pretty light, with just a touch of milk and cheese. This is a great weeknight meal that comes together easy and clean up is a breeze.

General question: how did you find your local farm to be a shareholder at? (Or, do you know how to find such info) I found localharvest.org which is pretty helpful but doesn't quite have the whole picture. Thanks!

Ellen, I came across our CSA serendipitously. The family that we bought our house from used to be the drop-off site in our neighborhood for Angelic Organics. I also heard about Farmer John and Angelic Organics through local media and became interested. Here are links to two articles about CSA's that may lead you to additional resources (both of them also mention Local Harvest):

What a lovely tasting dish. I'm always looking forward to something that is delicious as well as good for my type 2 diabetes. I hold off a little on teh pasta.

This is a really yummy recipe. My husband agrees, as his enthusiastic, "You could make this again," comment reveals.

You have a great site here, and I really appreciate the printable PDFs of your recipes, so that I can file them away and find them easily in my kitchen the next time I want to make them (avoiding the grease splatters on my computer screen).

Looks delish. I might have to try this with some chickpeas instead of chicken as we are veggie.
