4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves — cut crosswise into

1 large red bell pepper — thinly sliced
1 2/3 cups whipping cream
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese

Simmer until sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Add chicken strips and any juices in bowl to sauce. Add freshly cooked pasta and steamed broccoli florets and toss until sauce coats mixture, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
