How to make Parmesan Zucchini Tomato Chicken Spaghetti

Step 1: In a large skillet, heat a tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced zucchini to the hot oil, sprinkle with salt, and cook for approximately 5 minutes, flipping once until soft and a little brown. Set the zucchini aside when done.

Step 2: Add another tbsp olive oil to the now-empty skillet. Add in the sliced chicken breast, season with salt, and cook for approximately 5 to 7 minutes over medium heat. Flip the chicken slices a few times until no longer pink and completely cooked. Take away from the heat, then stir in 1/4 cup of basil pesto.

Step 3: Following the package directions, cook the spaghetti in a large pot with boiling water until al dente. Drain when done.

Step 4: To the skillet with the cooked chicken, add the cooked and drained pasta along with red and yellow cherry tomatoes (sliced in half), then another 1/4 cup of the basil pesto. Stir well and gently reheat over low-medium heat. If desired, add more basil pesto and season to taste. Take away from the heat, then sprinkle with 1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese.

Step 5: If desired, sprinkle each serving with more Parmesan before serving. Enjoy!
