Penne Pasta With Grilled Chicken and Roasted Tomatoes

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I came up with this by adding a couple of different recipes and adding touches of my own ideas. The whole family loved it! Prep time and cooking time is an estimate. So are the servings. This was kind of a throw together meal that worked!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Marinate chicken in favorite marinade and grill until done. You can leave out the chicken for a great vegetarian meal.
  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix tomatoes with oil, basil and salt and pepper to taste. Roast for 12 minutes in shallow baking pan.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to directions in water or broth add 1/4 cup white wine.
  4. Smash cooked tomatoes with back of wooden spoon.
  5. Chop chicken, if using.
  6. Drain pasta.
  7. Mix pasta, tomatoes, chicken and olives together. Add white wine and dressing.
  8. Serve warm.

Nice and delicate pasta dish! Made super easy by buying already grilled chicken breast from the deli. Went with the fresh basil option. Made 4-6 servings for two of us?it was even better the next day! Will try cooking pasta in chicken broth next time for added flavor.

I made this recipe as directed, EXCEPT, since the chicken is listed as optional, and we had been eating chicken several times recently, I very successfully subbed shrimp for the chicken. I used your recipe#361350 for the tomatoes, and may I say this is a truly delicious and easily prepared pasta dish. Made for Spring PAC 2014

Again a five star recipe. I used left over chicken and was able to create another whole meal that tasted so different from the first meal. That makes the family happy, when leftovers don't taste like left overs. Thanks for the great recipe.
