what could i pair this recipe with?

I love pasta. If I could live anywhere in the world, it would probably be Italy, so I could eat homemade pasta day in and day out, for the rest of my life.

Not only that, but they have some amazing bread and sweets there as well.

Here are a few of my favorite side dishes to pair with this Broccoli and Cheese Chicken Pasta:

We also love to serve our bread and pasta with salad. Here are a few of our favorite salad recipes:

You could really pair it with any vegetable, but a nice fresh crisp salad with some Italian dressing has got to be my favorite combination with this pasta.

I also like to dip my bread in both the pasta sauce and the salad dressing. You can’t go wrong with salad, pasta, and bread.

    • Not sure what happened. We were worried about it being to thick and that's why we added the note about adding more milk if necessary. Did it thicken up when you melted your butter then added the flour, salt and pepper with the chicken broth and milk? That should thicken up for you with the flour added to it. Sorry it didn't work out. -The Six Sisters
