  • Cook Time
  • Prep Time
  • 4Servings

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces whole wheat penne pasta
  • 4 5 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup dry red wine
  • 1 28 ounce can chopped tomatoes
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Preparation

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain.

Meanwhile, season the chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until browned, about 8 minutes; transfer to a plate.

In the same skillet, cook the garlic over medium heat until golden, about 1 minute. Add the wine, bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes and simmer until thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Return the chicken and any juices to the skillet, turning to coat. Top each piece of chicken with some of the mozzarella and 1 teaspoon parmesan, cover and cook until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes; transfer to a platter.

Add the pasta and parsley to the skillet, toss and season with salt. Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan and serve alongside the chicken.
