  • 2   tablespoons 
  • 1   medium-size 
    onion, halved and cut into 1/4-inch wedges
  • 2   cloves 
    garlic, sliced
  • 3/4  cup 
    chicken broth
  • 1   box 
    (1 pound) rotini or any corkscrew-shaped pasta
  • 1   package 
    (8 ounces) pre-cut fresh broccoli flowerets
  • 1   jar 
    (16 ounces) prepared Alfredo sauce
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/8  teaspoon 
    ground nutmeg
  • 1/8  teaspoon 
  • 3/4  pound 
    thin chicken cutlets (about 4 cutlets), cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 3   
    fully cooked Italian-herb or garlic-seasoned chicken sausages (about 7.5 ounces total) sliced into coins
  • 2   medium-size 
    tomatoes (about 1 pound), cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 3   tablespoons 
    grated Parmesan cheese
In large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; saute for 5 minutes or until softened. If necessary, add about 1/4 cup of chicken broth to the skillet to prevent the onion or garlic from over-browning.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boiling. Add the pasta; cook for 4 minutes. Add the broccoli. Return the water to a boil; cook for 5 minutes or until broccoli and pasta are cooked. Drain in a large colander.
Once the onion mixture is softened, add the chicken broth, the Alfredo sauce, Italian seasoning, nutmeg, cayenne and chicken strips. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat; lower the heat and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
Stir the chicken sausage and tomato wedges into the skillet. Gently heat through. Add the drained pasta and broccoli; stir gently to combine. Add 2 tablespoons Parmesan; toss to combine. Transfer the pasta to a large serving bowl or platter. Top with remaining Parmesan and then serve immediately.
