Spicy chicken pasta
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
- 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 lb chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 3-4 medium zucchini
- 1/4 c parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 lb whole wheat penne pasta (or whatever type you like)
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large pan, with a lid.
Saute the garlic and red pepper flakes for about 30 seconds.
Pour in both cans of tomatoes, stirring to combine; season with basil, a pinch of salt and pepper.
Stir in the chicken and cover; cook for about 3-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken.
Slice the zucchini lengthwise into four spears (half and then half again), then cut into 1/2 thick sections.
Stir zucchini in with chicken and cover; cook for another 5 to 8 minutes, until zucchini are tender; remove chicken as it cooks through.
When water comes to a boil, cook pasta according to package directions, about 10 minutes.
Drain pasta and toss with sauce and parmesan cheese; adjust seasoning to taste.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
