Tomato Basil Chicken Pasta 2

I am on a pasta kick lately and I do not see it ending anytime soon. Though this week at home I am trying to use potatoes as much as possible to change things up. This dish is perfect for everyone in your family to enjoy.

When I make this dish for Eric – we have leftovers ( the dish is really meant for 4 ) and it always reheats extremely well which makes me happy because I do not have to make Eric a lunch for work.

To make this dish gluten free all you have to do is use gluten free pasta ๐Ÿ™‚

Feel free to add in anything else you might like – spinach would be a great option.

My dad and I made this recipe together – here he is starting the water for the pasta


ย This recipe is super easy – when you cook the tomatoes they are going to release liquid which is going to mix with the oil and other ingredients making a very light sauce.

If you do make my Tomato Basil Chicken Pasta please make sure and let me know what you thought ๐Ÿ™‚ I really think you are going to love it.

I finished off the dish with fresh parsley from the garden – parsley is extremely easy to grow and I highly suggest you do ( it can really help finish a dish)
