Bruschetta Chicken Pasta

Italian food is a favorite in our home. Italian cuisine focuses on fresh, quality ingredients. The primary ingredients vary by region. Many classic Italian dishes only call for 4-8 ingredients making it a favorite for those who need to make dinner quickly.

It is a given that when I am making pasta, it will be served with a side of bruschetta. In an attempt to make dinner quickly after a long day at work, I decided to cut out the bread and combine the flavors of the bruschetta with the pasta. The result was a delicious, quick and easy dinner.

 

Here is my recipe
