I got this recipe from my Mom. I don't know where she got it, but she stumbled on it a few years ago and it was a keeper. Even though this recipe is a warm dish, it's still a good dish for when the weather get's warm too. It's full of color and flavor. Like I said. It's a keeper.
Spring Chicken and Pasta Stir-Fry
- 1 pkg uncooked linguine noodles
- 2 Chicken breasts
- 1 large carrot
- 1 small yellow summer squash
- 1 small zucchini
- 3 plum tomatoes
- 2 T olive oil, divided
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced or pressed
- 3/4 tsp salt, divided
- 1/4 cup snipped fresh basil leaves or 1- 2 tsp dried basil
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan Cheese
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp oil, garlic and chicken. Cook and stir the chicken until it is lightly brown. Add the carrots, squash, zucchini and 1/4 tsp of the salt (and dried basil). Stir fry 1-2 minutes or until vegetables are tender crips. (It'll take a couple extra minutes if the veggies are diced.
Snip the fresh basil and add basil, remaining oil, salt and pepper to pasta. Toss gently. Spoon Chicken and vegetable mixture over pasta. Garnish with tomatoes and grated Parmesan cheese.
(Yes, I know there are not any tomatoes in my picture.)
