Directions

Cook the noodles according to the box for al dente. Heat the oil in a large skillet and add the garlic. Sauté for about 1 minute, or until golden. Add the broccoli, salt and sauté covered for 3 minutes, or until the broccoli starts to soften. Add the tomatoes and mix, sautéing for 1-2 minutes. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 375F and lightly grease a baking pan. In a large pot, melt the butter and add the flour and a pinch of salt. Stir to mix well and cook for about 2 minutes on low. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth and then add the milk. Bring the mix to a boil and then simmer for 6-7 minutes until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and add half the mozzarella cheese and 1 tablespoon parmesan, mixing until melted and well combined. Add the shredded chicken, noodles, broccoli, tomatoes and cheese mix into the baking dish. Mix together and top with the remaining cheeses and breadcrumbs. Spray the top with a little bit of cooking spray and bake fro 20-25 minutes and then broil for 3-5 minutes to give the breadcrumbs a little crunch. Remove and serve.
