Chicken Tomato Basil Spaghetti

Sometimes it really pays to read some food and lifestyle magazines. You get inspired and suddenly you want to dash something off to your kitchen. Because I had so much time to splurge last vacation, I had a chance to peruse some in my rack and rendered certain recipes into our family plate. I'll be sharing two pasta dishes we enjoyed last holyweek. From our pot to yours, Chicken Tomato Basil Spaghetti. Bon a petit!

250 g spaghetti noodles
275 ml can crushed tomatoes
250 g chicken breast, cubed
3 tbsps olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp dried basil leaves
1/2 cup reserve pasta water
salt and pepper to taste
parmesan cheese, grated

1. Cook spaghetti noodles according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water.
2. In a sauce pan, saute garlic and onion in olive oil until fragrant. Add chicken breast and stir-fry until browned.
3. Add crushed tomatoes and pasta water. Season with salt, pepper and basil. Allow to boil and simmer until it's reduced to a slightly spoonable sauce consistency.
4. Stir in cooked spaghetti noodles and mix well. Top with grated parmesan cheese.
