I made this next recipe up a few years ago, and now it's one of our favorites! I don't have a name for it so we'll call it...
'Pass da' Pasta!
1 to 4 Cups of Diced Chicken (pre-cooked and frozen), or 4 Chicken Breasts (If you have leftover chicken or turkey, this is a great dish for that : )
1 14oz. tin of Diced Tomatoes
Olive Oil for cooking, then 1/2 cup Olive Oil to stir into the
pasta when it's ready
2 tbsp. Montreal Steak Spice
2 tbsp. Roasted Garlic & Peppers (you can use the little packets that come with your pizza! lol!)
4-6 tbsp. of dried Basil Leaves
1. Brown Chicken in a little Olive Oil. Add Spices - yum, will smell good, already! Make sure chicken is cooked, and in bite-size pieces.
2. Add the can of Diced Tomatoes. Stir well, Cover, and Simmer
for about an hour, or so. (Unless you're using leftover chicken, then just
as long as it takes to make the pasta : )
3 . Boil water and add 2 Cups of Tortiglioni noodles, and 2 Cups of Fusilli noodles, the Vegetable one. Or just use the whole box of Tortigioni : )
Optional: Mushrooms, Green Peppers, Italian Sausage, etc., etc.!
4. Do a 'taste test' to check when the pasta is ready. Rinse cold water through, first, so you don't burn yourself!
5. Rinse the pasta, then put back in pot. Add 1/2 Cup of Olive Oil, then carefully add the sauce. ( If you used the Chicken Breasts, cut into bite-size pieces before adding to pasta.) Pour into Large Serving Bowl.
6. Serve with Grated Cheddar Cheese, or eat it 'plain'. Enjoy!
This is delicious, the next day - I just add a wee bit more olive oil, heat
it up - yum!
Of course, as with all good recipes, you can adapt this to suit your own tastes, so if you like things a little milder, cut the spices in half; increase the amounts if you really love spices! You can also play around with the different shapes of pasta -- putting two or three different types of pasta in the same dish makes it interesting and adds texture to the meal.
Happy Cooking! Ailsa!
