Chicken and Vegetable Pasta

This dish will inspire compliments for its taste and colorful appearance. This is my favorite recipe from the book "Quick Meals for Healthy Kids and Busy Parents". I serve this over egg noodles and my family loves it. I usually add more vegetables than the recipe calls for.... I just go by what looks good to me.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup broccoli - chopped
1/2 cup onion - chopped
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 carrot - thinly sliced
1 celery stalk - thinly sliced
2 cups cooked chicken - cut up
16-oz. can chopped tomatoes
4 cups cooked pasta (any shape)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon parsley - optional

In large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Stir-fry broccoli, onion, garlic, carrot, and celery. Add chicken and tomatoes. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

While chicken is cooking, prepare pasta according to package directions.

Spoon chicken and vegetables over hot pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley, if desired.

Plain, simple, healthy... and great flavor. I serve this with simple dinner rolls. Makes a great meal. :)
