Number of Servings: 8


    * Garlic scapes, 4 scapes, chopped
    * Olive Oil, .25 cup
    * Onions, raw, 1 small, chopped
    Chicken Breast, no skin, 16 ounces, Diced
    * Whole wheat Rotini Pasta, 1 box
    * Mozzarella Cheese, part skim milk, 4 oz shredded
    * Parmesan Cheese, shredded, 4 tbsp
    * White Wine, 1 glass (3.5 fl oz)
    Salt and Pepper to taste


Prepare the Rotini according to package directions.
Season the Chicken breast with salt and pepper to taste.
In the meantime, heat Olive Oil over medium heat in a Skillet until just before smoking. Add garlic scapes and onions and saute until onions are transluscent.
Add chicken and carmelized on one side. (You know they are done when they start to move freely and are no longer stuck to the bottom of the pan. Flip the chicken and cook through. Add white wine (I used a Pinot Grigio/Chardonnay blend) to deglaze the pan.
When the pasta is cooked drain it and return it to the pasta pot. Add chicken mixture and both cheeses. Stir until well blended. Plate and sprinkle each plate with a little fresh Parm.

Serving suggestions, I served mine with baked zucchini and a mesculin salad.
If you don't have garlic scapes, substitute garlic cloves.
