Cook pasta according to box directions--add the broccoli during the last 3 minutes of cooking, then drain the pasta/broccoli but do NOT rinse. In a large skillet add the Italian diced tomatoes and the drained yellow string beans--cook/stir over medium heat until boiling. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and cook uncovered for 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken/turkey pieces--cook/stir until meat is hot. Add the drained pasta/broccoli to the tomato mixture--cook/stir until pasta is hot. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
