Chicken Pasta Primavera

I wanted to have some of the Noodle Expert's home made whole wheat linguini for dinner tonight and I found a nice looking recipe in the Carb Lovers Diet book.  Other than the pasta it calls for (1/2 cup uncooked whole grain rotini), I followed it pretty much as written.

Chicken Pasta Primavera
  • 2 servings home made pasta
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 4 ounces cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast, sliced into 1/2-inch strips
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 onion, sliced vertically
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced lengthwise into ribbons
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Cook pasta in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. 
  3. Add tomatoes, onion, garlic, zucchini, oregano, salt, and pepper to pan; cook 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Add chicken to mixture and cook till heated through.
  5. Plate pasta; place chicken mixture over it.
  6. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top.
Makes 2 generous servings.

I was very happy that the Noodle Expert liked it too!
