Notes

Precook your pasta - to save yourself some time, cook your pasta ahead of time.  Rinse it well after cooking and then store it in an airtight container or zip loc baggie in the refrigerator.  Run some warm water over it before you are ready to serve it or warm it up in the microwave.
Tomatoes -  If you don't have fresh tomatoes you can use some canned diced tomatoes.  Cut back on the chicken broth 1/4 cup if using canned tomatoes.
Herbs - If you don't have fresh parsley you can use dried parsley, just use half the amount.
