27 Recipes - Tomato Basil Chicken Pasta || Inspired Life with Jess

I’ve really enjoyed making basic pasta dishes lately, which is interesting since I’m not usually all that big on pasta at all! This one combined my love for chicken and basil though, and tomato seemed like the fun sauce type to try this time around!

My Thoughts

I didn’t mind this, but I know that there are other pasta recipes I like way more. I think next time I would use more cherry tomatoes, and possibly even add a little cream to the sauce

Michael’s Thoughts

Michael said this was quite good, and liked that it was quite healthy and basic. He’s always liked food more basic than I do, though

    • Thanks Maria! It wasn’t bad at all for a basic pasta and chicken dish, but I think it definitely needed more tomato! Hope you like it 🙂 >
