Chicken Capellini

This is one of my favorite recipes, and one of my "fall back" meals - you know, the one you fall back to when you don't know what else to make.  I almost always have these ingredients on hand and it is sooooo good.  Enjoy!

Chicken Capellini
4 Chicken Breasts, seasoned and cooked to taste (cubed)
12 oz. package spaghetti noodles, cooked according to package direction
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans (14.5 oz. each) Italian Style Diced Tomatoes
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 c. chopped fresh basil leaves (or 2 T. dried basil)
1/3 c. olive oil
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese

Heat olive oil, add garlic and cook until tender.  Add tomatoes, pepper and basil and heat through, stirring constantly, about 2 to 3 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Transfer hot, cooked pasta to a large bowl.  Toss pasta gently with tomato mixture, cooked chicken and half of Parmesan cheese.  Serve immediately and pass remaining Parmesan.
