    Pat Lawson Muse’s Basil Chicken Over Angel Hair Pasta

    1 (8 ounce) package angel hair pasta
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1/2 cup finely chopped onion
    1 clove garlic, chopped
    2 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
    2 cups boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and cubed
    1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
    1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

    1. In a large pot of salted boiling water cook angel hair pasta until it is al dente (about 8 to 10 minutes). Drain and set aside.
    2. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat, saute onions and garlic. Stir in tomatoes, chicken, basil, salt and hot pepper sauce (*key ingredient).
    3. Reduce heat to medium and cover with skillet. Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is hot and tomatoes are soft.
