Before starting, preheat your broiler to high.

In a large pot, add 10 cups warm water and 2 tsp salt (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Wash and dry all produce. Cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Toss squash and cauliflower with 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) on a foil-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Broil in the middle of the oven, until golden-brown, 12-15 min.

2

While squash and cauliflower cook, add cavatappi to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min. Reserve 1/4 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl). Drain, then return to the same pot. Set aside, off heat.

3

While cavatappi cooks, thinly slice chives. Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then cut tenders in half. Season with garlic salt and pepper.

4

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), 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 with 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, 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) 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 with chives and 1/4 tsp chili flakes, if desired.
