Caprese Chicken Pasta

This meal is probably more of a summer time meal but it was really good last night!!

  • 16 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into small pieces
  • 8-9 T olive oil
  • spoonful of minced garlic
  • salt & pepper
  • angel hair pasta
  • 2 pounds cooked, diced chicken
  • fresh basil
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped

In a large bowl, combine the cheese, oil, garlic, salt & pepper.  Let stand at room temperature for about an hour.

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and return to pot.  Stir in chicken, tomatoes, cheese and basil until heated.

Caprese Chicken PastaI love meals like this that are 1-Dish Dinners.  Plus, it was a snap to make!!!
