Rustic Pasta with Grilled Chicken

Want another easy & quick summer recipe? Good, because I've got one.

It's no secret that I love basil. Basil & cilantro run neck & neck for the herb most used in our home. I use one or the other (or both) almost daily.

This Rustic Pasta with Grilled Chicken can be made in literally about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Ingredients
:

* 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
* Italian seasoning
* penne pasta (or whatever you have on hand)
* 3-4 medium tomatoes, diced
* 1 cup lightly packed basil leaves, chopped or torn
* 3 Tbsp EVOO
* 2 cloves garlic
* salt & pepper




Directions:

1. Season chicken breasts generously with Italian season. Grill over medium-high heat until cooked through.

2. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions.

3. In a bowl, combine the chopped tomatoes, basil, EVOO & garlic. Season generously with salt & pepper.

4. Combine the cooked pasta with the tomato mixture.

5. Serve with sliced grilled chicken.


Ta-da! I told you it was easy.
