This rich pasta is comforting and creamy, with a colorful addition of greens to boot. A union of chicken, broccoli, bacon, cream, cheese, and pasta cooked in a single pot, it’s easy-to-make, easy-to-clean. Use cavatappi, a corkscrew-shaped macaroni, for a fun departure from Alfredo sauce’s more common pairing, fettuccine. This meal is an easy family pleaser and budget-friendly.
