Herbed Chicken Pasta

"I found this recipe many years ago in a Cooking Light magazine and it is my husband's favorite pasta dish. It's quick and easy, low cal and low fat too. We are garlic lovers and usually add 3 cloves of garlic to the dish. A green salad and french bread make a super meal. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!"

  1. This is one of our favorite recipes also. Yummy,quick, easy! Thanks for sharing it!
  2. Great way to use leftover cooked chicken. Also used diced canned tomatoes instead of fresh. Fast and healthy, what more would you want?
  3. I loved how healthy this dish was with fresh ingredients...plus it's quick enough for a week-night meal. My husband wasn't crazy about it, but I liked it more the next day for lunch after the flavors melded. Thanks!
  4. This is one of the first recipes I ever tried from Cooking Light and have been a subscriber ever since. My husband and I both love this recipe because it satisfies the craving for pasta and yet it is healthy. Thanks for posting!


<p>Hello! <br /> <br />I'm a Montana native that has made my way back after a few moves. I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years and we have twin boys who are 18 years old and Freshman in College.&nbsp;&nbsp; I wasn't ready for this empty nest stuff and just want my boys back home!&nbsp; I'm doing my best to adjust.&nbsp; I have continued cooking and am learning how to scale recipes back for just the 2 of us. My husband and I are partners in our own company and own 13 Subway sandwich shops. I work from our home handling all the financial and clerical duties of the business. <br /> <br />Over the years and especially since finding Zaar, cooking has become my passion. My grandmothers were very good cooks and I have fond memories of the meals they prepared. We love entertaining and nothing pleases me more than having my family and others enjoy the food I make. I love it when the house smells good with dinner or whatever is baking. I came upon recipezaar searching for a rhubarb cake recipe one day. The recipe I chose was a 5 star and my addiction began. It took a few months before I started really utilizing the site but once I did my cooking has never been the same. My family now knows all about having to rate recipes, picking their favorite chefs, etc. It's become a family thing and they have told me that I may never let my membership to Recipezaar ever end. <br /> <br />We love to travel and try to go whenever we can. Owning our own business has helped free up time where we can travel more. We've done some Europe, Canada, and much of the U.S. In the coming years I hope to do a lot more. Eating out when we are traveling is the best. I'm trying to learn more about the restaurants and chefs in places we are visiting so we can try and visit those restaurants and enjoy some of the great places our town just doesn't have. <br /> <br />The whole family loves to ski and we look forward to the season every year - it makes winter tolerable. Renting movies or just hanging out with friends is the making of a relaxing weekend for us.</p>
