A family favorite swaps jarred sauce for fresh--which requires just a few ingredients and less than 10 minutes.
Serves 4 (serving size: 2 cups)
1. Preheat broiler. Line a jelly-roll pan with foil.
2. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
3. While pasta cooks, combine oil, garlic, tomatoes, and onion on prepared pan; toss. Broil 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer mixture and any liquid from pan to a blender. Add 2 tablespoons basil and tomato paste; secure blender lid on blender. Remove center piece of blender lid; cover with a kitchen towel. Blend until smooth.
4. Drain pasta; return to pan. Stir in tomato sauce, salt, pepper, and chicken. Cook over medium heat until heated. Place spaghetti mixture on a serving platter. Chop remaining 2 tablespoons basil leaves. Sprinkle basil and Parmesan evenly over spaghetti.
