Chicken Basil Pasta

I recently found a recipe website that I love! It’s called Eat Better America. We’ve made a few successful recipes from this site that I’ll try to post soon, but the one we made tonight….oh, it was delicious. I had to post it right now. I modified the recipe just a little bit, so here’s my version:
Chicken Basil Pasta

1 T. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 Roma Tomatoes, diced
2 C. cubed cooked chicken
3 T fresh basil, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp Tobasco Sauce
8 oz pasta (I used Tinkyada spaghetti noodles)

Prepare pasta according to directions. Meanwhile, heat oil in skillet on medium heat. Add all other ingredients and cook until tomatoes are soft (about 5 min). Serve over pasta. Sprinkle a little parmesan on top if you want.
When I made this, I was looking at it wondering why it wasn’t more “saucy.” If you’re as concerned as I was about the lack-of-sauce, just have a little faith and try it out. It doesn’t need sauce. It’s perfect just the way it is.


  1. My sister-in-law gave me this recipe a few months ago and it is so good. The second time I made it I forgot the tobasco, and it made a huge difference, I didn't like it nearly as much. Good find.
