Chicken Tomato Pasta is a quick, go to weeknight dinner idea. Use tomatoes fresh from the garden or the grocery store to make this dish even more flavorful.
Pasta is a standby meal at our house. Whenever I can’t think of what to fix for dinner, pasta usually comes to the rescue. All you really need are some noodles (I used nice big fat, egg noodles this time), some meat (chicken or sausage usually), some vegetables (fresh chopped tomatoes, onion and tomato paste), some liquid (chicken broth) and some other seasonings (garlic, Italian seasoning, Dijon mustard and parsley). And of course a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese . Voila! Chicken Tomato Pasta for dinner!
Pasta is also the perfect way to use up whatever leftover meat and veggies you might have in the refrigerator.
The sauce can be made in almost the same amount of time as it takes the noodles to boil. You can get creative with your combination or just keep it simple and basic like I did. I love making Chicken Tomato Pasta in the summer when I can pick fresh tomatoes right out of my own garden.
This dish is a great way to make a little meat (one chicken breast) go a long way. And you have almost all of your major food groups in one dish. I just added a spinach salad to go with it and we were good to go. Quick and easy dinner time solution.
What’s your standby, go to meal??
