As we started the New Year I could feel my body literally craving vegetables! I had eaten so much junk over the holidays; it was time to start cooking and eating CLEAN again.
This recipe came to mind because it is so easy to prepare, full of veggies and whole goodness! Plus it tastes DELICIOUS!! I have really come to love the taste of warm cherry tomatoes just as they pop open.
Start by cutting up all of the chicken.
Add whole wheat penne pasta to boiling water, cook until soft.
Saute the chicken with garlic and red onion with olive oil.
Cut up the zucchini and prepare to saute.
Cook together until zucchini is soft and tomatoes have popped.
Serve over whole wheat penne pasta.
