Bruschetta Style Pasta with Chicken

I admit it- I got this recipe from the back of Ronzoni Healthy harvest box but have made some really great additions/subtractions to I will call it my own!:) Adults die for it and even kids love it. My nephew who infamously NEVER eats dinner had 2nds and 3rds. And I use the whole wheat blend of pasta or you can even use the protein Barilla plus pasta and skip out on the chicken.

Bruschetta Style Pasta with Chicken
1 box Ronzoni Healthy Harvest pasta (I like to use Penne Rigati pasta or bow ties)
3 TBSP Olive Oil
3 TBSP minced garlic
3 c. fresh tomatoes, diced (you can use canned but I have always used fresh)
3 TBSP balsamic vinegar
1 TBSP Pesto
Diced, cooked, and seasoned chicken breasts
Parmesan cheese

Cook and season chicken breast in frying pan. I like to used Italian seasoning with s&p of course. You want this to be hot so I cook this while I am boiling the pasta. Meanwhile cook olive oil, vinegar and garlic in a large saucepan until garlic browns. Add tomatoes and pesto. Then add pasta and diced chicken. Garnish with Parmesan or any type of Italian cheese.
