Instructions

Chicken Cheddar Shells:
Prep
  • Bring water to a boil for pasta in large stockpot.
  • Cut broccoli into bite-size pieces.
  • Shred cheese and chicken (breast meat only), about 2 cups each.
Steps
  • Cook bacon in microwave following package instructions. Chop bacon coarsely; set aside. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Cook pasta following package instructions. Stir in broccoli and chicken during last minute of cook time.
  • Crush crackers and place in bottom of 9-inch square baking dish. Drain pasta mixture thoroughly and return to stockpot.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients until well blended; spoon mixture over crackers in baking dish. Cover dish with foil; bake 12–15 minutes or until hot and broccoli is tender. Serve.
Peach Caprese Salad:
  • Peel peaches (optional) and cut in half, discarding pit, then cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Cut cheese slices in half.
  • Arrange cheese and peach slices on serving platter, alternating and overlapping layers (shingle). Chop basil.
  • Sprinkle basil and salt over top; drizzle with oil and balsamic glaze. Serve.
Aprons Advice:
  • Complete your meal with bread sticks and a chocolate cake for dessert.
  • In a hurry? Instead of transferring the pasta mixture to a baking dish, you can simply cook and stir for 4–6 minutes over low heat or until hot. Top with one-half of the crackers before serving.
