Chicken and asparagus tossed with penne – MayoClinic.com

Serves 2

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups uncooked penne pasta
    1 cup chopped asparagus
    6 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes with herbs, including juice
    1 ounce soft goat cheese, crumbled
    1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese

    Directions

    Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente (tender), 10 to 12 minutes, or according to the package directions. Drain the pasta thoroughly. Set aside.

    In a pot fitted with a steamer basket, bring 1 inch of water to a boil. Add the asparagus. Cover and steam until tender-crisp, about 2 to 3 minutes.

    Spray a large nonstick frying pan with cooking spray. Add the chicken and garlic and saute over medium-high heat. Cook until the chicken is golden brown, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the tomatoes, including their juice, and simmer 1 minute more.

    In a large bowl, add the cooked pasta, steamed asparagus, chicken mixture and goat cheese. Toss gently to mix evenly.

    To serve, divide the pasta mixture between 2 plates. Sprinkle each serving with 1/2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

    This recipe from the Mayo Clinic (not to be confused with the Mayonnaise Clinic) sounds really good (but without the Parm cheese…yuk!)
