We add olives, capers, crushed red pepper, and fresh basil to bottled pasta sauce for a quick variation on the traditional Chicken Puttanesca.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain and keep warm.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. Add chicken to pan; sprinkle evenly with salt. Cook chicken 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Stir in pasta sauce, olives, capers, and pepper; bring to a simmer. Cook 5 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring frequently. Arrange 1 cup pasta on each of 4 plates; top with 1 1/2 cups chicken mixture. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon cheese. Garnish with chopped basil or basil sprigs, if desired.
