Pasta Shells With Grilled Chicken & Mozzarella

A This is a simple yet so classicly delicious pasta and chicken dish. One of my favorite ways to eat pasta, it's great in the summer because there's no heavy sauce. Great with a nice homemade garlic bread. Yum!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil a large pot of water for pasta shells. Meanwhile, season chicken with salt and pepper and cook on grill or in a grill pan until no longer pink. When done, remove and cut into small strips.
  2. Cook pasta shells to desired firmness. Reserve about 1 cup of the pasta water and then drain shells and return them to the pot.
  3. Add the cooked chicken, tomatoes, mozzrella, parmesan, parsley, and butter to pot. Stir to combine.
  4. Slowly add some reserved pasta water until a nice coating of sauce is on pasta- you will probably not need all the reserved pasta water. Serve with more parmesan cheese for sprinkling. Enjoy!

This is an awesoe recipe, light and simple and perfect for a summer menu! I grilled 4 small chicken breasts (boneless/skinless), only about 1/4 c parsley. The fresh cheeses (not pre-grated/pre-shredded) make the difference! Thanks for posting!
