Tomatoes, chicken, cream, pasta and cheese…  what a perfect comfort dish!  I love that this all cooks up in one pan because I really love not washing dishes.  :)  Make sure your pan is large so you have some room to stir the pasta as it cooks!

I used rotisserie chicken in this dish which made it a breeze to whip up!  If you don’t have fresh basil, you can use dried but be sure to add it to the pasta as it is cooking instead of at the end!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 8 oz medium pasta (penne, shells or rotini)
