A great comfort pasta dish that uses chicken breasts and the bright flavour of basil. If you want some heat add some chilli flakes.
Used different ingredients. I love this recipe. I used fresh garden tomatoes, tripled the garlic, added dried oregano, and omitted salt. Because the tomato mixture doesn't really make a sauce, I added 225ml of white wine and 200ml chicken stock. Let everything simmer and it was simply delicious and light. The grated parmesan cheese is an essential finishing touch. I will definitely include this dish in my regular rotation. Thanks! - 18 Jul 2008
I love this recipe and we have it about once a month. I think it's great the way it is. I think people that don't like this recipe can't appreciate pasta that's not swimming in sauce. I don't think it's bland at all. My husband tends to like more sauce on everything so he's commented that it needs more sauce but he still loves the flavour. - 18 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. This was very good, i used penne instead. I sauteed the onion with garlic and chicken, along with salt pepper, oregano, crushed chillies, and added 1 tin chopped tomatoes. I put a pinch of sugar to cut the bitterness of the tomatoes. I tossed with the pasta and it was sooooo goood. Cheers! - 18 Jul 2008
