This Grilled Chicken Pasta Primavera is a twist on the version that my husband loves from his mom. The main twist being that we grilled the chicken instead of cooking it over the stove. My mother-in-law was so kind to share this recipe that she recited to me over the phone completely from memory! You know it’s an awesome family recipe when it has been made so many times that you no longer need the instructions!
This is the PERFECT pasta dish for summer, it has all the ingredients that are so fresh and good this time of year. I used fresh tomatoes and squash from my parent’s garden and fresh basil from my little italian herb garden. It was so incredibly yummy! It actually ended up making so much that we took some over to our friends to try and they gave this dish two big thumbs up!
Another thing that I love about this pasta is how healthy the sauce is, no heavy creams and you only use a tiny bit of oil to sauté the garlic. Other than that it is just the veggies and broth that make up the sauce but it is seriously packed with flavor! Make it with whole wheat noodles and go light on the cheese and you have a really healthy, low calorie meal!
