Zesty Chicken and Pasta

The ingredients:
1 pkg. (8 oz.) fusilli pasta- I used tri-color rotini
1/2 cup Italian dressing- I used more because I like things with more dressing
1 lb. chicken breasts
2 cups broccoli florets
1 large red pepper, chopped- I used green because they cost 1/2 as much
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp. chipped fresh parsley- I didn't use this
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1. Cook the chicken. I boiled it, but you could grill or bake it.
2. Cook pasta.
3. While pasta is cooking, put 1/4 cup Italian dressing in a skillet. Add chicken. Let this cook about 5 minutes.

4. Add broccoli, pepper, onion, and parsley to chicken and cook 5 more minutes or until vegetables become tender.

5. Drain pasta. Mix chicken mixture with pasta and remaining Italian dressing and parmesan cheese.
