Zesty Chicken and Broccoli Pasta

Chicken, Broccoli, and Pasta,
three of my favorite ingredients and they are all in this dish.
This is another family classic weeknight meal at our house.
This meal requires no oven baking, perfect for the warm summer months.
The Zesty Italian dressing gives this dish just the perfect blend of spices.
Serve with fresh fruit and French Bread, and you have a satisfying and tasty meal!
