Pasta with Marinara, Veggies, and Chicken

Pasta with Marinara, Veggies, and Chicken

Serves 4-6.

Here's an easy meal for you.  It takes your grocery store's fast fixes (boxed pasta and jarred marinara), combines them with a few fresh favorites (chicken breasts and veggies), and wa-lah! dinner!

1 box penne pasta
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar your favorite marinara sauce
Olive oil
One small zucchini, chopped
One tomato, chopped
1/2 c. shredded carrots
One green bell pepper, chopped

Cook pasta according to package directions.

In a saucepan, cook veggies in a few teaspoons of olive oil over medium heat until tender.  Add marinara sauce and heat through.

Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook chicken breasts in a few teaspoons of olive oil over medium heat until no longer pink in the middle, flipping halfway through.  Remove chicken breasts when fully cooked and set aside.

Transfer cooked and drained pasta to bowls, top with marinara/veggie mixture, and lastly top with sliced chicken breasts.  Serve with garlic bread.
