INGREDIENTS

  • 1 box (12 ounces) ZENB Rotini Pasta made from 100% Yellow Peas, uncooked
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup drained, oil-packed roasted red peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped basil
  • 1/2 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 small lemon, juiced

INSTRUCTIONS

1.

Cook ZENB Pasta as directed on package. Drain. Season chicken with salt & pepper.

2.

Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat until shimmering. Add chicken to skillet in single layer. Cook, undisturbed, 2 minutes or until browned on one side. Stir; cook 2-3 minutes until done. Transfer chicken to clean plate.

3.

Reduce heat to medium; add garlic. Cook 1 minute stirring constantly. Add wine; cook 2-3 minutes until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in chicken and any juices, pasta, tomatoes and peppers; cook 1-2 minutes until heated through. Remove pan from heat. Add remaining ingredients. Mix gently until cheese is melted and well combined.

Tasty Tips

Add 1 tablespoon butter to skillet with the herbs for an extra velvety sauce.

Oil-packed roasted red peppers are readily available online or at well-stocked grocery stores. Water-packed roasted peppers make a great substitute.

Substitute low-sodium chicken stock for the white wine.
