IMG_3215
With permission from Gooseberry Patch I’m bringing you another recipe from their brand new book
Rush Hour Recipes
The review of the book is on my main blog.

Ingredients:
16 oz. package of Penne Pasta, uncooked
1/4 c. olive oil
1 tsp. garlic, chopped
28 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained ( I used the ones with the jalapeño's in it!)
1/2 c. fresh basil, chopped or 1 tsp. dried basil
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
8 oz package shredded mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; sauté for one minute. Stir in tomatoes and basil; continue cooking for 2 minutes. Add chicken to skillet. Simmer for about 5 minutes, until heated through. Transfer mixture in skillet to a large serving bowl; toss with pasta and cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
This was a hit with my family. EVERYONE loved it!
