  • Stir in water. Bring to boil. Add pasta; cook 8 min. or until tender.

  • Add broccoli, VELVEETA and seasonings; stir. Cook 5 min. or until VELVEETA is completely melted, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes.

Substitute:

Substitute any other small shaped pasta for the rotini.

Make it Easy:

Substitute 1 pkg. (16 oz.) frozen vegetable blend for the broccoli, letting the kids choose their favorite variety to use in this one-pot dinner!

Easy Cleanup:

Cooking the vegetables in the water with the pasta is a great time-saver since there is one less pan to wash!

This was a simple easy and tasty week night dinner with ingredients I usually have on hand. I added some onions and garlic while I was sauteing the chicken but did not add tomatoes because those are our family's preferences. Read More

This recipe was simple to put together however it is lacking in flavor. I thought of that as I was making it and wondered where the spices were but I made it as written. A bit disappointing. I will make it again but I'm going to put together a spice combo to add more flavor. Read More

I love it! But I sometimes substitute a can of mild rotel for the tomatoes. Or I mix in a can of cream of mushroom or chicken...excellent with substitutes or not! This one's a winner! Read More

I had leftover Velveeta and veggies from the holidays but had no idea what to do with them! This was the answer! I had very low expectations bc I never cook with Velveeta other than quest dip but this was surprisingly tasty! Definitely a quick weeknight dinner. To make sure the broccoli was cooked I dumped it as well as some chopped cauliflower on top of the boiling pasta halfway through (without stirring) and put a lid on the skillet the broccoli and cauli steamed nicely without overcooking!: ) Thanks for the recipe!

Reading how it was kinda bland I added 2 cans of rotel and it was awesome. My picky eater loved it so I will definitely be making this again. Read More
