My Yummy Pasta and Chicken Recipe

Thought I'd share a recipe my family loves. It's pretty easy and very.... you guessed it.... YUMMY! I made this recipe using Mara's Pasta's Spaghetti, but you could use your pasta of choice. (To read my review of Mara's Pasta go HERE

~The best part about this recipe is that it doesn't need a lot of chicken, because of all the veggies and pasta. Enjoy! =)

My Yummy Pasta and Chicken

  A healthy, filling and very yummy chicken dish with veggies, parmesan cheese, and pasta.
Prep time:
Cook time:
Serves-  4 (My family of 4 which includes 2 kids... usually has some leftovers)
Calories per serving: 347


2 tablespoons  olive oil - separated

12 ounces spaghetti, penne, or angel hair pasta (if serving more people add extra pasta)
1 1/2 cups chicken broth ( I use low sodium/fat free)
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated

1- Heat 1/2 of the olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add cubed chicken. Cook through 6-9 minutes. Then drain on paper towels.

2- Heat remaining olive oil.....{ start the water for pasta now}.....add minced garlic. 1 minute

3- Then add the frozen veggies.... {chop any that are not bite size} .... stirring them constantly for about 6 minutes or until cooked through.

4-Cook Pasta according to package directions. {set timer so you do not cook too long}

5-Add chicken broth, basil,oregano, and one half of the Parmesan cheese to skillet with veggies. stirring until cheese is melted. 1 minute

6- Add cooked chicken and let simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
