I made this up after tasting something similar at the Olive Garden that I loved.


  • 1 box of bowtie pasta
  • 1 head fresh broccoli florets (frozen will work if you prefer)
  • 1 pkg skinless/boneless chicken, cut in small pieces
  • 1/2 bottle to 1 bottle pine nuts -also called Pignolia nuts (depending on how much you prefer)
  • 4 - 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • EVOO (extra virgin olive oil - generous amt)
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)


  • Saute the pine nuts in EVOO until golden to dark brown.
  • Add chicken and cook till almost done then add the garlic; finish cooking chicken till white throughout.
  • Boil broccoli until tender crisp (do not overcook); add to chicken mixture.
  • Boil bowtie pasta; add to chicken mixture and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Genereously add the EVOO as it is the base for this recipe.
  • TIP: I usually get the broccoli and pasta going at the same time so it'll be ready when chicken is. This is a throw all together, quick, and easy dish. Enjoy.
