Pasta with Chicken, Zucchini, Tomatoes, and Basil

by Chelcie on April 20, 2012

I’d say that one of my favorite parts of summer and spring is the fresh food!

I love cooking with fresh herbs, lemon, and veggies…it just screams summer to me!

that and drinking sangria and sitting by the pool..

So Tuesday night for dinner I made a delicious Pasta with Chicken, Zucchini, Tomatoes, and Basil

First up I got my pot of water ready to boil, and cooked the pasta according to package instructions.

Then I sauteed the chicken in a non-stick pan with salt and pepper and some non-stick cooking spray

Cook over med-high heat for about 3 minutes and then add in the chopped zucchini

Cook the chicken and zucchini for another 2 minutes and then add in the chopped tomatoes and garlic

Stir it all together and cook for another minute. Just make sure all the chicken is cooked through!

In a large bowl add in the drained cooked pasta, chicken and veggies, chopped fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil

Serve with a little sprinkled goat cheese or feta cheese on top

YUM-the flavors of fresh basil and balsamic just remind me of summer eating!

oh and it took a little less than 20 minutes to make

so you should probably go make it for dinner NOW. or lunch.whateva
