Creating quick meals is my passion and I love being able to help others by cooking for them. Recently my next door neighbor had a health issue and was in the hospital for a few days. I thought it would be nice if he could come home to a healthy comforting meal. This roasted Bruschetta Chicken Pasta fit the bill.

I used chicken tenders to make this dish because they cook quickly and are a lean white meat. Since I did not want to add a lot of salt to the meal, I used plenty of fresh herbs and spices. You can add extra salt if you wish, but the sweet roasted tomatoes and other ingredients give it plenty of flavor without too much sodium.

This whole meal can be prepared in less than 45 minutes, so it is another great choice for an easy week night dinner. I served it with whole wheat angel hair pasta, but feel free to cook rice, orzo or another starch. It would even be good with some sourdough bread to soak up the yummy juices.

This dinner also pairs well with a vegetable side dishes like this cucumber tomato salad recipe. If you're like me, you can never have too many tomatoes on your plate!

Happy eating!

Notes

  • I used whole wheat angel hair pasta, but any whole wheat pasta works here.
