 Ingredients

1 (8 ounce) package angel hair pasta

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 clove garlic, chopped

2 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes

2 cups boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and cubed

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

 

Instructions

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook angel hair pasta until it is al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.

 

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute the onions and garlic. Stir in the tomatoes, chicken, basil, salt and hot pepper sauce. Reduce heat to medium, and cover skillet. Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is hot and tomatoes are soft.

 

Toss sauce with hot cooked angel hair pasta to coat. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
