Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, drain.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Melt butter in a large pot; add flour and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add chicken broth, whisking to blend. Bring to a boil and allow to thicken slightly. Add cooked broccoli, and chicken and heat through. Remove from heat.

While off the heat, stir in the yogurt, pesto and the parmesan cheese, and heat slightly. Toss with the cooked pasta.


You can easily cook the broccoli by adding to the pasta during the last 2 minutes of cooking time, and drain together.
