Veggie & Chicken Pasta / Chicken & Vegetable Pasta

 
Is there anyone out there, who hate a good bowl of pasta..I hope no one..This pasta is another addition to my list of pasta recipes in this blog. It has a yummy homemade pasta sauce, grilled spicy chicken pieces, flavourful sauted veggies all combined with a giant pasta curls. I saw that trottole pasta on my supermarket shelves, i loved the shape of it. So immediately took one packet. But honestly speaking, i will never buy it again, it is so large and takes a longer time to cook. I think that a normal size pasta taste better than this gigantic pasta. So it is upto you.



I used my homemade tomato sauce for this, you could either make it yourselves or buy a jar(i hope you wont). And if you are vegetarian, you can skip the chicken part in this recipe and make it only with vegetables. so try this dish and let me know how it turned out..
