Chicken Pasta Pomodoro

Boil approximately half a pound of your favorite pasta al dente.

While pasta is cooking, cook the following in a large frying pan on medium heat:

1/2 c. chicken broth

1/4 c. olive oil

3 medium tomatoes diced - canned tomatoes also work

1 zucchini, diced

2 Tablespoons minced garlic

2 Tablespoons fresh basil (If using dried, use about 2 teaspoons)

Salt and Pepper to taste (I usually add quite a bit)

Add 2 or 3 cooked chicken tenderloins or 1 cooked chicken breast.*

Simmer until tomatoes are soft and zucchini is tender.

Pour over pasta and top with grated Parmesan or Romano cheese. Enjoy!

Serves 4-6.

*You can easily make it meatless by omitting the chicken or add shrimp or sausage for variety.
