Reminiscent of pasta salad, this recipe calls for mixing rotini with tender, garden-fresh vegetables and a basil-flecked balsamic vinaigrette. This dish is delicious served warm or chilled, which makes it a great lunch-box option. Serve with a side of fresh bread from the bakery.

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 2

While pasta cooks, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken and asparagus to pan; sauté 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and garlic to pan; sauté 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in pasta, basil, vinegar, and oil to chicken mixture in pan. Top with cheese.

Step 3

Serve with: Spinach Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

I made this over the weekend and it was so good. Everyone asked for the recipe. The only thing i changed was the cheese, i used feta instead of goat cheese.. Yum

This is one of our standby recipes. I use low fat feta instead of goat cheese and -- if I have time -- I marinade the chicken in balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The leftovers never last long in the fridge!

My husband & I love this. It's one of my favorites. Our kids don't care for it though. So easy to make & all the ingredients taste so good together.
