Healthy Bow Tie Chicken Supper

This healthy dinner is easy to make and very yummy! I like to add whatever extra veggies I have on hand to change it up. My husband is a picky eater with vegetables but he loves this dish! NOTES: I add a little more olive oil while the veggies are cooking as it adds a nice coat to the pasta. I also add extra pasta to this to make it stretch a little further. We really like adding summer squash as well and I have been omitting the peas lately because hubby dislikes them.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Start boiling water for pasta. Cook bowtie pasta until just al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, saute chicken in oil for about 5 minutes, or until just done.
  3. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  4. To the same skillet add the red bell pepper and onion and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add another tablespoon of olive oil if needed to moisten.
  5. Add the zucchini (and summer squash if using) and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another minute until veggies get crisp-tender.
  6. Add the thawed peas, tomatoes and seasonings; stir-fry for 2 more minutes.
  7. Add cooked pasta, chicken and parmesan cheese; turn off heat and stir until combined.
  8. Add more olive oil if necessary to coat pasta and sprinkle with more parmesan cheese if you'd like and enjoy!

I made this again recently; I'd forgotten how good this recipe is. I actually ended up accidentally using pork cubes instead of chicken (the frozen meat wasn't labeled) but it tasted just as good that way. I think any meat cut into small pieces would work.

Great recipe! At first I forgot to include the parmesan cheese, and it still tasted great. Instead of using frozen peas (which I didn't have), I used canned peas. The zucchini was perfect. An all-around great meal!
