Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked cavatappi pasta (5 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup julienne strips sun-dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups frozen baby bean and carrot blend (from 1-pound bag)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup shredded Asiago cheese (1 ounce)

    Meanwhile, spray 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Cook chicken, garlic pepper and salt in skillet 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until chicken is brown. Stir in tomato mixture and vegetables. Cover and cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are crisp-tender.
  • 3
    Stir in pasta; cook and stir until thoroughly heated. Stir in parsley. Sprinkle with cheese.

  • Asiago is a semifirm Italian cheese with a rich, nutty flavor. It's a bit softer than Parmesan cheese and tastes a little smoother.
  • Place parsley in a glass measuring cup and use kitchen scissors to quickly chop it.
  • Parmesan cheese is a good substitute for the Asiago.
