Another simple one...

I love when I find a quick recipe that turns out tasty as well. This meal was definitely done in under 30 minutes and was flavorful and satisfying. Sadly Joseph couldn't find any basil at Trader Joe's when he went after work so I had to improvise. Luckily I had picked up some frozen basil cubes (they also have cilantro and garlic cubes) in the freezer from an earlier TJs run.

If you want easy... this is the recipe for you :)

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair Pasta
  • 1 (8 ounce) package angel hair pasta
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes (I used 1 can of diced tomatoes)
  • 2 cups boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil (I used frozen basil cubes from TJs)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (I omitted)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook angel hair pasta until it is al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute the onions and garlic. Stir in the tomatoes, chicken, basil, salt and hot pepper sauce. Reduce heat to medium, and cover skillet. Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is hot and tomatoes are soft.

Toss sauce with hot cooked angel hair pasta to coat. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
