Penne Macaroni with Peppers and Grilled Chicken

I got this recipe off of a Penne pasta box and my family has loved it. We have been trying to do more recipes with whole wheat and this one is a good one. I don't know about you, but when I hear whole wheat in a recipe I automatically think yuck, but I promise it is really good in this recipe. Give it a whirl!

13.25 oz. Whole Wheat Penne
1/3 cut extra virgin olive oil
1 cup sweet onion, diced
4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 oz. fresh basil, chopped
1 cup(8oz.)chicken, grilled and sliced into strips
1 cup roasted red peppers, diced
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cook the Penne according to package directions. Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat; add onions and garlic, cook until onions are transparent. Add basil, chicken(already grilled) and red peppers. Cook 2 more minutes. Add chicken broth and hot Penne to skillet and toss together until all the ingredients are evenly distributed. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately.

Serves: 4-6

Hey Alicia just an idea, you might want to go back to your posts to edit them and add labels to them (a box at the bottom right of the box you type in) so when people want to search recipes your yummy ones get included when they click on chicken or pasta, or dessert, or whatever else you might add later.
