8 oz. (2 2/3 cups) uncooked cavatappi pasta
1 tbsp oil (from jar of sun-dried tomatoes)
1 lb. chicken tenderloins, cut in half crosswise
2 tbsp finely chopped green onions
3 tsp dry ground mustard
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup chopped drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes (from 7 oz jar)
1 (24oz.) bag Green Giant Frozen broccoli & three cheese sauce
1 (6.5oz.) pkg. garlic and herb cream cheese spread
