Fresh Herb Penne With Chicken And Tomatoes ..... Pasta made so easy!

Fresh Herb Pasta With Chicken And Tomatoes
I subscribe to Cooks Magazine. With each edition a product or a kitchen tool is evaluated. One month it was pasta. They used expensive pasta as well as the easily available and inexpensive pasta. Much to any one's surprise, Mueller's pasta was rated as the best product on the market. Today I am offering the recipe from the Mueller's box which results in a tasty dish and an easy to prepare recipe.
16 oz. Mueller's Penne Rigate
4 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh chopped garlic
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes OR
2 cups fresh diced tomatoes cooked just to soft
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped or cut into thin strips
10-12 ounces cooked chicken breast cut in strips
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Mozzarella cheese OR
I prefer grated Parmesan cheese to taste
Cook and drain Penne Rigate according to package directions. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add tomatoes anad basil and cook for 2 minutes. Add chicken; simmer for 5 minutes. Toss pasta with cheese. Season to taste with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Serve immediately. Serves 4
