Chicken Pasta with Veggies

It seems like I haven't posted in forever!  Probably because I haven't.  I'm finding it harder to come up with new recipes.  Thankfully I found this one on Pinterest.... changed it slightly to add some flavor.   It is a FAVORITE!   I've actually cooked it several times... I'll eat it for three days and not even care that I'm eating the same meal three days in a row!  Now that's a good recipe!!
8 ounces angel hair pasta
2 cans organic chicken (or about 1lb of cooked chicken... I use can for ease when I can)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 medium carrots sliced diagonally
1 1/2 Cups fresh broccoli
3 tsp Minced Garlic
1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan Cheese
2 tsp dried Basil
2tsp Thyme
1/2 tsp Salt

1. Cook Pasta according to package.
2.  In a skillet cook carrots in oil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.   Add Broccoli and garlic, cook 2 minutes longer.  Stir in the chicken, broth, cheese, basil, thyme and salt.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
3. Drain pasta;  serve chicken & veggie mixture over pasta... I usually pour some of the broth on the pasta as well.   Enjoy!

Yields about 5-6 servings.
