1 lb whole grain linguini
1 1/2 cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken breast
1 red bell pepper
4 cloves garlic
3 celery stalks
1/2 a red onion
a big handful of fresh basil (about 8 large leaves)
salt & pepper
Cut the veggies up a bit: quarter the tomatoes, celery stalks in 1/2 or 1/3, large dice the red onion, red pepper seeds removed cut into large strips. You can leave the basil (leaves removed) and garlic whole.
Stir in the chicken and simmer another 10 minutes or so. Toss in al dente cooked linguini with the sauce. Finish off with more fresh chiffonade basil.
