With permission from Gooseberry Patch I’m bringing you another recipe from their brand new book
The review of the book is on my main blog.
16 oz. package of Penne Pasta, uncooked
1/4 c. olive oil
1 tsp. garlic, chopped
28 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained ( I used the ones with the jalapeño's in it!)
1/2 c. fresh basil, chopped or 1 tsp. dried basil
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
8 oz package shredded mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; sauté for one minute. Stir in tomatoes and basil; continue cooking for 2 minutes. Add chicken to skillet. Simmer for about 5 minutes, until heated through. Transfer mixture in skillet to a large serving bowl; toss with pasta and cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
This was a hit with my family. EVERYONE loved it!
