1 pound penne or ziti
Salt
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 14-oz. can artichoke hearts (about 8), rinsed, drained and chopped
1/4 cup kalamata or other black olives, pitted and chopped
2 cups (10 oz.) shredded chicken from 1 rotisserie chicken
1/2 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil

Preparation

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta and 1 Tbsp. salt and cook until tender.

While pasta is cooking, warm oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, stirring, about 30 seconds. Stir in artichokes, olives, chicken, broth and 1/2 tsp. salt and heat through.

Drain pasta in a colander. Return to pot and stir in chicken mixture and basil. Adjust seasonings, sprinkle with cheese and serve immediately.
