This recipe marks the half way point in my goal for 100 recipes for 2012! Hooray! I have plenty more that I am behind on for posting. So here we go!

This meal is the PERFECT fresh pasta. Completely delicious. Make it as much as possible before all of the delicious summer tomatoes are gone!

Bruschetta Chicken Pasta

Borrowed and Adapted from First Real Kitchen Cookbook By: Megan and Jill Carle

Serves 4 
{we cut in half, which is good because I don't think the leftovers would have been all that great in comparison!}

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts {2 or 3}
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
12 oz of whole wheat angel hair pasta {spaghetti works too}
4 large tomatoes
4 cloves of garlic
One 2/3 ounce package of fresh basil
2 T. olive oil
1 T. Balsamic vinegar {or to taste}
1 T. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1) Preheat grill, george forman or grill pan. 

2) Season chicken with sea salt and pepper. Put on grill and cook for 5 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Let sit for 5 minutes and then cut into strips. Keep warm.

3) Meanwhile: Cook pasta according to box directions. Drain and keep warm.
4) Halve, seed and cut the tomatoes into pieces. Peel and finely chop the garlic. Roughly chop the basil leaves. Combine tomatoes, basil, garlic and olive oil and small bowl and season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
5) Divide the pasta between 4 plates. Evenly divide the tomato mixture between each plate as well and then top with chicken. Drizzle the Balsamic vinegar over the top and sprinkle with the fresh Parmesan. Serve immediately.
