    rickscott's Note:

    This is a pasta recipe I've been cooking forever. I've changed it slightly over the years, but it's basically the same sauce I've made since I was a teenager.

      Excellent. Super easy. Note: Recipe calls for grilled chicken. I didn't feel like separately grilling chicken, so I just sauteed my cut-up boneless skinless chicken breast in the the onion and garlic, took it out when it was cooked through (so it wouldn't overcook while I simmered the sauce a bit) and then added the tomatoes, sauce, basil, salt, etc. I did add some crushed red pepper. I added a little too much. My super-picky six-year old son loved it that way though!

      I really enjoyed this. The sauce was nicely flavored. The second time I made it, I used a couple of tablespoons of capers and about 15 green olives sliced. I also had some shrimp I needed to use up, so I peeled those and put them in with the chicken too. I too used dried basil. The fresh doesn't yet have enough leaves!! I like the idea of a little red pepper. There are endless possibilities with this recipe. Thanks for posting.
