Servings: serves 4 - 6      Prep Time: 10 minutes      Cook Time: 20 minutes

A light pasta with broccoli, sautéed chicken and a secret ingredient, miso.

If you don't have Miso & Easy product, substitute with traditional miso paste, add 2 tablespoons to 1 tablespoon of water in order to loosen the paste. Since traditional miso paste can be saltier, add 1 tablespoon of thinned miso to begin with, taste the final sauce and add additional miso to taste.

Ingredients:

1 pound pasta
2 cups broccoli florets
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons Miso & Easy or see above for miso paste substitution
1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
1/2 cup shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
2 green onions, finely sliced
salt and pepper

Directions:

1) Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and cook pasta according to package directions. Four minutes before the pasta is done, add broccoli florets.
2) In the meantime, season chicken with salt and pepper. Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat, add chicken and cook until browned on all sides and cooked through, about 6 minutes.
3) Remove chicken, turn heat to low then add butter to skillet. Once melted, remove pan from heat and add miso, whisk until butter and miso come together then add Greek yogurt, stir to combine.
4) Drain pasta, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water.
5) Add pasta, reserved pasta cooking water, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and chicken then toss. Garnish with green onions.
