There are not many dinners that make everyone in our house happy.
If three out of four kids like a meal, I call that a huge win.
If four out of four kids like a meal, I call that a miracle!
This easy chicken, mushroom and broccoli pasta is a double miracle meal.
Not only do all four kids like it, but they also like cooking it.
Even when they were little the kids could help cut the veggies for this meal. If you cut the mushrooms in half first they are easy to cut even with a butter knife. Break off the broccoli ‘branches’ and the kids can use a butter knife or serrated table knife to cut them into small pieces too.
This was one of the first meals my big kids cooked entirely on their own, and these days it’s become a firm family favourite.
Chicken Mushroom and Broccolie Pasta
This family favourite dinner is super easy and quick to make. You can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes, and if the kids cool that’s 30 minutes extra time to do other things… like fold laundry!

My problem when I get the kids to cut up veggies, including both mushrooms and broccoli, is that very little makes it into the bowl. The majority goes into their mouths!

I’m jealous of both yourself and Chris that you can get mushroom and broccoli into your children’s mouths! Maybe when Lil is a bit older a role in the food prep will help.

mmmmmm, sounds yummy.
That looks really tasty, and isn’t it so great when you hit on dishes that you all love! Thanks for sharing at Happy lil ?’s are baking :-)
You could also make a roux instead of the mushroom soup, same for the spinach pasta bake if you don’t regularly buy cream. Also probably more economical.
1 tbsp oil with 1 tbsp flour blended ina saucepan cooked for 1 minute. Remove from heat and gradually add 1 cup of milk. Return to heat and cook until thickens, about 10 minutes.

This looks delicious and so easy, I think this would become a family favourite in our house.
