Cheesy, just like me!

Nothing exciting to report here, except that it is really freaking cold outside. This healthy vegetable packed dinner warmed us up!

Cheesy Chicken, Vegetables, and Noodles

(6 huge portions, I'm guessing more like 8)
4 cups egg noodles, uncooked
1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/4 cup Light Italian Reduced Fat Dressing
3-1/2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 large red pepper, cut into strips
1 yellow squash, sliced
12 oz. Velveeta Made With 2% Milk Reduced Fat Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product, cut up
3 Tbsp. fat-free milk

Cook pasta as directed on package.
Meanwhile, cook chicken in dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat 5 to 7 min. or until chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Add vegetables; stir. Reduce heat to medium; cover. Simmer 5 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
Meanwhile, place Velveeta in small microwaveable bowl. Add milk. Microwave on high 2 to 3 min. or until Velvetta is melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 1-1/2 min. Add to chicken mixture, add drained noodles, and mix lightly.
