This meal is relatively easy to make but takes a little bit of time, around 30 minutes. You can increase or decrease serving size, but the recipe below will make approximately 4 servings. This meal supplies lots of vitamins from the veggies as well as good fiber, and there are plenty of whole grains in the pasta.

-2 Chicken breasts

-2 or 3 cloves of garlic (based on personal preference)

-1 zucchini, sliced and quartered

-2 whole carrots, sliced

-1 green or yellow bell pepper

-1/2 small can black olives

-1 can organic primavera sauce

-Whole grain Farafalle pasta (3/4 is one serving, so based on desired servings, you can make as much or as little pasta as you would like)

Directions:

Cut the chicken breasts into 1″x1″ chunks and sautee in olive oil and Italian seasoning with the garlic (sliced or minced, to preference) in a large saucepan.

Once the chicken is nearly cooked through, add the veggies and cook until tender.

Add pasta sauce and black olives and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

While chicken and sauce is simmering, cook the pasta.

Mix both together or pour sauce over the top of the pasta. You can sprinkle parmesan or romano cheese over the top (in moderation of course!).

Enjoy!
