  • 2 oz pasta, shapes
  • 2 medium carrot
  • 1 1/2 cup, chopped collard greens, raw
  • 2 stalk, medium (7-1/2″ – 8″ long) celery
  • 1 1/2 medium (approx 2-3/4″ long, 2-1/2 dia.) bell pepper, red
  • 1 1/2 cup, pieces or slices mushrooms, white
  • 2 breast chicken breast
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 spray , about 1/3 second (1 NLEA serving) cooking spray
  • 1 cup chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 6 oz Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 4 medium (2-1/2″ dia) tangerine (mandarin orange)


  • Make pasta as directed on package. While pasta cooks, chop all vegetables into bite-sized pieces, set aside. 
  • Season chicken with Italian seasoning; spray large skillet with cooking spray, place over medium-high heat; add chicken.  Brown on both sides, cooking until no longer pink.  Remove from heat, dice into small pieces; place in dish, cover and set aside.
  • With cooked chicken bits still in skillet, place over medium-high heat once again. Add 1/4 cup broth, scrape bottom of pan to remove bits; add vegetables; cook for 5-6 minutes, adding more broth as needed to keep vegetables moist and avoid burning.  Add chicken, turn down heat to medium-low; cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow chicken to warm up.  Finally toss with pasta.  Top with parmesan cheese and serve with tangerine wedges on the side.
