1

Before starting, bring a large pot with 10 cups water to a boil and wash and dry all produce. Cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Toss squash and cauliflower with 2 tbsp oil on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Broil in middle of oven, until golden-brown, 10-12 min.

2

While squash and cauliflower cooks, add cavatappi to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain, then return to the same pot. Set aside, off heat.

3

Meanwhile thinly slice chives. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and cut tenders in half. Season with salt and pepper.

4

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp butter, then the chicken. Cook, turning pieces over occasionally, until cooked through, 5-6 min.** (TIP: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook the chicken in two batches if needed!)

5

Add onions to the pan with chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 1-2 min. Sprinkle over flour. Cook, stirring often, until coated, 1 min. Add cream and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring often, until thickened, 1 min.

6

Add chicken and cream sauce, cheese, reserved pasta water, 2 tbsp butter and half the squash and cauliflower to the pot with cavatappi. Stir until cheese melts, 1 min. Divide between bowls and top with remaining squash and cauliflower. Sprinkle over chives and 1/4 tsp chili flakes if desired.
