Making a simple homemade pasta sauce is super easy and once you perfect a base you’ll find changing up the flavor is super easy! I encourage you to give it a try!

Here’s what you need for this tasty pasta dish!

1lb chicken cut into strips

1 lemon zested and quartered

2 Roma tomatoes, cut into wedges

2 tbsp tuscan or southwest seasoning

3 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp cream cheese

1/4c. Parmesan cheese

2 sprigs of fresh basil chopped

Salt and pepper

Olive oil

Preheat oven to 400°F, and bring a pot of salted water to a boil.

Zest and cut lemon and wedge the tomatoes. Place tomatoes skin side down on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt pepper and tuscan 1 tsp tuscan seasoning. Place in preheated oven and roast until they start to soften and juices can be seen releasing around the wedges.

Rinse and drain chicken, pat dry with paper towels, add to a preheated skillet with olive oil, salt, pepper, and 1tsp of the tuscan seasoning. Cook until browned and heated to temp.

Meanwhile cook spaghetti reserce 1/2 c of pasta water, drain pasta and set aside, do not rinse your pasta!
