Chicken, Broccoli and Red Pepper Pasta

I love pasta, it is my downfall for sure.  I can never say no to a plate of pasta.  My favorite pasta is penne.  There is just something about those little tubes of carbs that make me do cartwheels!  I have noticed lately that when I do a cartwheel I now see ‘stars’!  I need to make a mental note to find another move to do when I get excited.  Wait, I better write that down because I don’t remember my mental notes anymore.  Wait, where is my pen???  Shoot, what I was I going to write down?!  Help!!!!!!

This dish combines chicken, pasta, broccoli, red pepper, onion, garlic, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and feta cheese.  Yea, yea, you love me, I know.

Isn’t it beautiful?!
