Penne With Leeks and Chicken

This is one of our favorite pasta dishes, full of flavor and texture, and it's relatively low fat.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes



Combine first 6 ingredients in Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Add chicken; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Remove chicken from pan. Strain cooking liquid, reserving 1 1/4 cups; discard solids. Shred chicken; set aside.

Heat oil in Dutch oven. Add leeks; sauté 5 minutes. Sprinkle leeks with flour; stir well until flour is well incorporated. Add reserved broth. Cook 3 minutes or until thickened and bubbly, stirring constantly. Add chicken, pasta, and next 3 ingredients; simmer 5 minutes. Serve with freshly grated or shredded Parmesan cheese.

I stir in a little cream just before serving, but it's lower in fat and delicious without the cream.
