5-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts,
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1 green pepper, cut into strips
1 1/2 cups diced eggplant
1 zucchini, thinly sliced
1 small jar of pasta sauce (Tomato & Herb)
2-3 tablespoon of dry white wine (optional - especially if you’re serving children - like my Chef!)
3 cups penne rigate, or mostaccioli
Salt and pepper to taste
Grated cheese (optional)
Wash chicken breasts thoroughly. Dry with paper towels. Cut them into ½ - inch slices; or just medium sized cubes.
In large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add chicken and green pepper strips.
Stirring frequently while cooking, until chicken is no longer pink.
Add the eggplant and zucchini. Continue cooking for about 3 more minutes. Stir frequently, or until vegetables are tender.
Stir in pasta sauce; heat to boiling. Stir to keep from burning. If you’re also adding the white wine, now is the time to do it!
Add a touch of salt and pepper.
Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes; or until chicken is cooked thoroughly.
In the meantime, cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and rinse when done
This easy ratatouille recipe goes great with a little garden green salad as a starter.
To serve, put some pasta on a plate and spoon the chicken veggie sauce over it. Sprinkle with cheese, if you like. Repeat!
That’s it - that’s all there is to it!
