Meat Lite: Mac & Cheese with Chicken and Broccoli

[Photograph: Joy Manning]

This recipe sprang from some leftovers that I had on hand during a recent blizzard that buried us here in Philadelphia as well as an intense craving I had for starchy, cheesy comfort food. This homey casserole really delivers on a cold day and additions of lean chicken and vitamin-packed broccoli lend just enough nutrition to keep any guilt at bay. I used whole wheat pasta, which worked well and contributed some great nutty flavor, but any small shape of your choice will do.
