Chicken Rotini Pasta (whole wheat)

This meal came together quickly. It tasted good. You could try it with a different kind of pasta. It was fun to use something different than spaghetti.


1 28 oz can whole tomatoes
1 6 0z can tomato paste
1/2 onion chopped up
1 small can of mushrooms
1 clove minced garlic
1 1/2 - 2 C cooked shredded chicken (had some in the freezer) =)
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1 13.25 oz box whole wheat rotini
grated Parmesan cheese


1. In a pan pour tomatoes, tomato paste, onions, mushrooms garlic, and spices. Let cook together chop up tomatoes into smaller pieces. Cover and let cook 10-15 min. (The longer you cook it the better the flavor) Then add chicken cook another 15 min.

2. In the meantime cook pasta according to package directions. Cook till pasta is tender. Drain pasta, and add to chicken mixture. Cook together for a few minutes.

3. Pour grated cheese on top of the mixture and serve. You can put additional cheese on top of each individual serving. Yum! It was fun to use something different than ground beef. =)

* gluten intolerant you could substitute a gluten free pasta.
