From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser. Chicken,
shells, carrots, broccoli & corn are tossed with a
creamy garlic sauce. A touch of cayenne gives it a
little kick. Also good with ham.
Cook according to directions:
2 c small shells
In a steamer:
1 1/2 c sliced carrots
2 c broccoli
1 c corn
In another pot, over low heat:
3 Tbsp butter or margarine
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 tsp cayenne
When butter is melted, add:
1/2 pint heavy cream (1 c)
3/4 c chicken broth
Simmer until slightly thickened.
1/2 - 1 tsp basil
1/2 c Romano cheese
This makes a lot of sauce. You will not use it all.
You may not even use half of it. Spoon the sauce
over pasta & veggies a little at a time until it's well
coated. Store the rest in the freezer for later use.
salt & pepper, to taste
additional Romano cheese
Fold in fully cooked chicken or ham, cubed.
I made this batch of Primavera without any meat. You can
adjust the amounts of veggies to suit your taste.
