Ingredients

    Parmesan Cheese, grated, 0.50 cup
    Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
    Chicken Breast, no skin, 2 unit (yield from 1 lb ready-to-cook chicken)
    Summer Squash, 3 small

    Italian Spice Mix
    Goya Adobo Without Pepper
    Salt
    Pepper

Directions

Pre-Heat and Clean Upper Rack of Grill
Butterfly Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Halves
Season Chicken to Taste ( I Love Adobo)
Lay Chicken on Upper Rack (off the direct heat) of Grill
Put Water on to Boil for Pasta
Wash and Prep Veggies; Julienne the Peppers, Thin Slice the Onion, Thick Slice the Squashes, and BUY Sliced Mushrooms, Cherry Tomatoes halved
Now Hurry out and Flip Your Chicken
Turn The Heat on the Grill Down We want it to get about 350 but don't get too fussy just lower the heat
Go back inside and check your water cook a whole box of shells per directions
Grate your Parmesan Cheese
Go out and get that Chicken and let it cool on a plate
Get a Large Deep Aluminum Pan
Add the Olive Oil to the pan
Add the Veggies to the pan and Toss Around
Cut your Grilled Chicken into Cubes Add to the pan Season and Toss Around Again
Add the juices that collected on the cooling plate to the pan
Add your Cooked and Strained Pasta to the pan
Thoroughly Rinse Cannelini Beans or White Beans and Add to the pan
Pour Tomato Sauce over the Ingredients in the pan
Season again if you like and give it all a little stir
Shake your grated Parmesan over all and cover with foil
Place on the lower heat Grill for 30 to 40 minutes checking under the foil occasionally (the Chicken is already cooked so the look of the veggies will tell you when it's done)
By volume one serving was 10.4 0z. or a smidge over a Cup and 1/4
Eat Healthy and Have a Great Summah
