Serves 4 (serving size: 2 cups)

A family favorite swaps jarred sauce for fresh--which requires just a few ingredients and less than 10 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler. Line a jelly-roll pan with foil.

Step 2

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

Step 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.

Step 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.

I liked it well enough to make again.  However hubby did not like how the sauce turned out.  It did go together easily.  I broiled the tomato/onion/garlic mix for 4 minutes then tossed then another 4.  That seemed the right amount of time in my oven.
