This dish is simply amazing! Having an abundance of cherry tomatoes in the house from my garden, along with some boneless skinless chicken breast, I searched the web for recipes, and boy am I glad to have found this one! I wasn't sure how it was all going to come together, but it was pretty simple to make, and packed with flavor. I did substitute parmesan cheese, since that's all I had, and I used a tri-color rotini instead of penne. I highly recommend this dish to anyone who wants a fast, healthy, delicious recipe!
