Grilled Chicken Tomato Basil Pasta

June 22, 2014

I have to admit that it was very hard for me to stop eating pasta when I went on my clean eating frenzy 8 months ago. I did lose the baby weight and more even. I was a big carb junkie back then. But I always ate bad carbs and I just didn’t care. Now that I have lost the weight I am just maintaining so I eat more healthy carbs. We make pasta once a week and I use whole wheat or whole grain.  Every time I ask my kids what they wanted to eat it seems like the only answer they know is Pasta or Peegetti. They imitate  Peppa Pig. She always says Peegetti. I would rather eat Pasta made at home than at a restaurant. I noticed that at restaurants they are always loaded with butter. Have you seen the Healthy Mac and Cheese, it is a popular one at my house.

At First we were just going to have the tomato basil pasta. it just happened that I was grilling some chicken for my husband and I realized that why not add some protein on the past dish for the kids and I am glad that they loved it. Thank God all my kids love Chicken. it came out just perfect and delicious.

      Hi Katie
      Thank you. I love using barilla. the only time I don’t use Barilla is when I cant find the one I want in whole grain or whole wheat.

    Hi, this looks delicious, I added the garlic to the sauce, but no where in the recipe does it say to add garlic even though its one of he listed ingredients.

      Hi Elizabeth
      Yes it is in the sauce. I am so sorry sometimes when I am typing up recipes and my kids are either being obnoxious or trying to kill each other I seem to forget to mention a few things….. thanks. How was it? Hope you liked it
