Introduction

Mediterranean Pasta that's healthy and takes only 20 minutes to make. My daughter and husband loves this and they don't even know it's a "healthy" recipe.

    We all liked it, I only did 3 chicken breast, it's a lot of meat! I added about 4 more olives and cut them in half to look like more, for eye appeal. Also added half a zucchini, fresh parsley and a green bell pepper too. - 12/1/09

    Excellent, I didn't have tomatoes and my family thought it needed to be spicier. I will experiment next time but definitely will make it again. - 1/3/10
