This dish was delicious! I used whole wheat pasta and feta cheese instead if goat and loaded up on the fresh basil. My husband asked that I put this recipe into our meal rotation!

Added some sun dried tomatoes, oil-marinated in herbs. Also added some fresh garlic, and added more fresh basil. I only had feta, but making again tonight with goat cheese. Great way to use up leftover chicken! fast, easy and delish.
