Number of Servings: 4


    4 oz whole wheat capellini or angel hair pasta
    3 oz dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes
    1.5 Tbsp olive oil
    8 oz chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
    1/8 tsp salt
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
    1/4 c sliced fresh basil
    1/2 c pine nuts, toasted


1. Prepare pasta per package directions without adding salt. Meanwhile, soak tomatoes in hot water 10 minutes or until soft. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of water, and chop.

2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat while pasta cooks. Season chicken with salt. Add chicken, garlic, and red-pepper flakes to skillet. Cook, stirring, until garlic turns golden, 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and reserved water and cook 2 to 3 minutes until chicken is completely cooked.

3. Drain pasta, add to skillet, and toss. Add basil and toss. Divide pasta equally among 4 bowls and sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons of pine nuts. Top with more basil, if desired.

    I made this last night exactly as instructed. It was DELICIOUS! Since I am lactose intolerant, I was thrilled to find a scrumptious meal that I can eat. My husband told me to make it again soon. - 11/14/20
