Bow-tie Chicken Confetti

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

I found this in a Woman's Day Eating Light mag when I was searching for a way to use up a bit of bow-tie pasta I had left from another recipe. It's colorful, tasty and lower in fat. Please don't leave out the fresh basil, it really adds a wonderful touch to this dish.

This is so good!!!! I hate it took me this long to make this. It's so simple with ALOT of flavor. I love recipes that call for fresh basil, because it grows so well in my garden in the summer. This is on my list of fav recipes!!
